Waveform Options

Reliable and resilient communications are paramount to so many components of today’s battlespace: mission readiness, soldier lethality, security, and the list goes on and on. To account for an increasingly contested and congested battlespace, waveform modernization is critical for today’s warfighter and the way we use them in-theater must evolve.

A new whitepaper from The Modern Battlespace titled “Examining Waveform Options for Today’s Warfighter” delves into a few different areas around waveform modernization, including how it helps in the overall effort to get warfighters the communications capabilities that they need.

“Over the coming months and years, we will witness the migration to a more open system approach that will, if done correctly, lead to the ability to agilely scale and grow capabilities from multiple industry sources to ensure our military continues to have that force multiplier found in reliable and resilient communications,” explains Joseph Graf, fellow at Collins Aerospace, in the whitepaper’s foreword.


This whitepaper looks at the following areas of need for military waveform modernization:

Plot(,LineSpec) specifies the line color, line style, or marker options. These options are the same options found in the MATLAB ® plot function. When both real and imaginary plots are specified, the LineSpec applies to both subplots. This argument is always the last input to the method. The Options window lets you select various display and configuration preferences. To open the Options window, from the main WaveForms window select the Options button. To change an option, select an item, then select the corresponding drop-down list item. Default Waveform view. The default track created in Audacity when you press the record button is a stereo track displayed in Waveform view with a linear vertical scale running from -1.0 (negative values) to +1.0 (positive values), centered on zero (provided you have not changed Audacity's default for the display). In the Simulation Waveform Editor, choose Simulation Settings Simulation Options and delete -novopt following vsim in the Model Script (and save the changes). Preview file 51 KB.

  • The advantage of utilizing barrage relay networking (BRN) when using the MANET waveform, as exemplified in a partnership between Collins Aerospace and Trellisware.
  • A comprehensive comparison of the SATURN and HAVEQUICK waveforms and how SATURN builds on the HAVEQUICK program to create a more robust offering for today’s warfighter.
  • An overview of the existing waveform landscape and how the industry and defense communities are working together to keep pace with warfighter needs and expectations with solutions like software defined radios.
