Equipped with the high performance parameters of the PicoFlexor, the PicoFlexor Transceiver adds a transmit capability.

In a miniature, tactical software-defined radio (SDR) platform, the PicoFlexor Transceiver integrates a transmitter with a high-performance SIGINT superheterodyne receiver in a single, low size, weight and power module.

With its open SDR architecture, the PicoFlexor Transceiver can be configured using open frameworks, such as GNU Radio and REDHAWK, to fit customer-specific application requirements. This customization enables the unit to perform in systems for both military and commercial operations including electronic attack, situational awareness, geo-location and spectrum monitoring.

Key Features

  • One SDR SIGINT receiver with a frequency coverage of 11 MHz to 3 GHz and 25 MHz bandwidth
  • One SDR transmitter with a frequency coverage of 20 MHz to 6 GHz and 56 MHz bandwidth
  • SDR-compatible embedded Linux platform with a field-upgradeable open architecture
  • Frequency agility to quickly shift operating frequency in order to tune and transmit anywhere across its 20 MHz through 6 GHz spectrum
  • Increased digital processing capability allows processing from simple signals to complex signals in one small package
DRS frequency extender to 12.4 GHz

Pair the PicoFlexor Transceiver with DRS’ SI-9249/FE12 and extend the frequency range of the superheterodyne receiver from 3 GHz to 12.4 GHz.
