An unnamed Asian army is to receive software-defined radios from Rafael, with deliveries starting this year.

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems announced on 14 February that an unnamed ‘Asian army’ has selected its BNET software-defined radio (SDR) for installation on ground vehicles.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin this year.

A contract was signed on 29 January ‘following a thorough and intensive tender process’, Rafael stated, in which the Israeli company competed against multiple rivals.

The scalable BNET SDR family of dual-band mobile ad hoc network (MANET) radios features multi-channel reception and is designed for tactical operations. The system provides jam-resistant, high-speed data and voice (analogue and VoIP) communications.

In June 2021, the company announced that its BNET-AR solution will be installed on a fleet of aircraft belonging to the air force of an unnamed Asian country.
