Innoflight’s SCR-106 follows the success of the SCR-100 and SCR-104. Innoflight continued to leverage its knowledge of Software-defined radio design, development, and production to reach new levels of data throughput and expanded frequency offerings. The result of this lead to the SCR-106 and SCR-108.
The SCR-106 makes use of a significant amount of the SCR-104’s proven, flight-heritage components including its Intermediate Frequency Software-Defined Radio (IF-SDR) modem. The SCR-106 has data rates up to 105 Mbps and has a pathway to achieve much higher data rates. The transmitter operates between 7,900 and 8,500 MHz, and like all of our radios, the SCR-106 transmitter offers various modulation techniques including BPSK, QPSK, OQPSK, and 8PSK.
The receiver of the SCR-106 has an operating frequency range of 2,025 MHz to 2,110 MHz and is programmable in-flight. Various receive modulation techniques are offered including, GMSK/FSK, PCM/FM, FSK/AM, and BPSK with the option to add other modulations.
The SCR 106 is designed for performance and reliability in a substantially miniaturized package. It incorporates advanced modulation, encoding and transport methods through modern highly integrated application specific chipsets (RF) with a high density System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGAs. Through our deep experience in FPGA design, we provide sophisticated smarts in a single device and add built-in deep space environment performance and reliability improvement mechanisms. The SCR-106’s advanced communications components allow frequency, power, waveform, modulation and other features to be selectable and controlled on the fly unlike traditional space hardware.
Each individual SCR-106 is qualified by Innoflight before delivery. This includes Acceptance Test Procedures (ATP), and workmanship thermal cycle testing. For additional testing measures and services please consult Innoflight’s available services.
