Understanding The Limitations

Of Modern Military Radio Testbeds

In the past 10 years, the use of military radios has increased dramatically, and, in turn, so has the need to test those radios. In part, this increase stems from the advent of such military-based communication applications as the land mobile radio system and tactical networks, as well as the introduction of both software defined radios and cognitive/multi-user Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) wireless radios. Typically, these military radios are tested together in a closed mesh network, with programmable attenuators used to vary the attenuation and simulate different distances between the radios. While this test platform (i.e., military radio testbed) enables test engineers to conduct rigorous, transparent, and replicable testing of military radios, it is not without its limitations: namely the size of the mesh network, or, in simpler terms, the number of radios that can be tested together.
