SRS joins the ACCORD project as the LTE software radio partner with responsibility for terrestrial waveform development. ACCORD is an ESA project within the ARTES 5.1 program to develop innovative terminals capable of seamlessly switching between different air interfaces. A fully operating software radio testbed will be implemented supporting one satellite network (based on DVB-S2 for the forward link and DVB-RCS2 for the return link) and one terrestrial network (based on 4G LTE). The project commenced in January 2014 under prime contractor MBI with subcontractors Mavigex and Space Engineering with an overall duration of 21 months. SRS joins the second phase of the project, due to complete in November 2015.
