_DSC9567-015cropped_t9GpO9SAt DSEi 2015, Finmeccanica – Selex ES introduced its new SWave™-family Software Defined Radio (SDR), named the Hand Held Evolution (HH-E). Designed to bring commercial smartphone size and weight characteristics to military-qualified battlefield radio equipment, the SWave™ HH-E weighs less than 550 grams and measures just 155mm x 70mm x 40mm.

The HH-E is the latest in Selex ES’s SWave™ software defined radio family, which offer reconfigurable secure data and wideband networking capabilities in addition to standard voice communication. The HH-E is compliant to the US SCA 2.2.2 and European ESSOR architectures. This means that the radios can be upgraded to new waveforms as they become available. The radio has been launched with the Soldier Broadband Waveform (SBW). A narrow-band waveform will be available early 2016.

The Selex ES SWave™ SDR family includes the latest single channel hand-held SDR (HH-E), a 2 channel manpack SDR (MB1), a 2 channel vehicular SDR (VB1) and a 4 channel vehicular SDR (VQ1). An earlier variant of the SWave™ HH-E, the SWave™ HH, is currently in-service with the Italian Army. A naval SWave™ SDR product is also in development.
