Joint radio system of the German Armed Forces

SOVERON D is a member of the SOVERON software defined radio family.

The key components of the German MoD programme SVFuA are a multi-channel next generation software defined radio (SDR), the full communications management system and the scalable security layer up to national and NATO SECRET. SOVERON D manages communication networks from the brigade down to the platoon Ievel, with a special focus on joint and combined missions with multi-level security needs, supporting operations conducted by coalition forces. The system connects the vehicle IT infrastructure with the tactical Control and Command system.
