Indra to Develop SDR Products with PrismTech's Spectra Tools

Today at SMi’s 6th annual software radio conference, “The Future of International Software Defined Radio”, Indra and PrismTech announced an agreement for Indra to use PrismTech’s Spectra Tools for the development and deployment of Indra’s software-defined radio product lines.

Javier Herraez, SDR program manager at Indra commented, “After a lengthy and thorough evaluation of the enabling SDR technologies available, we decided to select Spectra tools due to their excellent ease-of-use combined with superior productivity for our SDR software developers. The auto-generation and inherent testing of 100% of the SCA infrastructure code by the Spectra Tools are particularly attractive. The fact that PrismTech offers an end-to-end solution for development and deployment also strongly influenced our decision. By using PrismTech tools, Indra can focus its efforts in the development and integration of complete SDR systems, both terminals and waveforms, for our customers.”

Indra will use Spectra Tools for a number of SDR programs, including TERSO, the first Spanish SDR terminal. Spectra Tools will be the SCA tool for the development of the TERSO Operating Environment and Waveforms.

Dominick Paniscotti, VP of SDR Products at PrismTech commented, “We are extremely pleased to have Indra join the Spectra user community. PrismTech is working with a large number of SDR OEMs around the world and is seeing consistent praise for the usability, productivity and flexibility of the Spectra Tools. Considering Spectra Tools debuted on the SDR market less than six months ago we are finding the market reaction extremely satisfying.”
