About the event

Entering its 11th year, SMi’s International Software Radio conference will once again bring together the leading minds in the field of Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Cognitive Radio.

Over the past year we have witnessed some rapid developments in the SDR industry, with many of Europe’s leading SDR programmes undergoing significant upgrade and development.

However, it is outside of the military that Cognitive Radio has seen some major breakthroughs with rapidly advancing cellular technologies. This conference will explore a comprehensive overview of all these developments and the significance for military aspects of SDR.
