The Picoceptor realizes the power and flexibility of a software-definable radio, while overcoming the size, weight and power (SWaP) challenges of today’s battlefield. It can be scaled to meet the mission criteria of the autonomous warfighter or of sophisticated intelligence-gathering networks.

A wide selection of Picoceptor types allows custom matching to mission requirements ranging from low-power, single-channel tactical uses to high performance networked battlefield use. Its software-definable architecture means it can be deployed for a signal intercept/analysis application, then re-deployed for threat warning, and again re-deployed to other mission critical applications, such as precision geo-location. Software and firmware loads are available for further customization.
