Software-Defined Radio (SDR)

Software-Defined Radio (SDR) is a satellite technology for radio communication. It allows for implementing different radio waveforms and communication protocols using software rather than relying on fixed hardware. This means the satellite can be reprogrammed remotely to adapt to changing requirements or upgrade its capabilities. SDR technology also offers improved flexibility, as it can support multiple frequency bands and modulation types, making it a valuable tool for satellite operators.
