Software Defined Radio Certification in Europe: Challenges and Processes

Authors:
Gianmarco Baldini
Dimitrios Symeonidis

Keywords: Software Defined Radio, Certification, Performance Benchmarking

Abstract:
Standardization and certification of Software Defined Radio technologies are closely related. This paper describes the current standardization efforts for Software Defined Radio technologies in Europe and the related certification processes with a specific focus to the public safety and military domain. This paper describes the regulatory and technical requirements for the certification of Software Defined Radio in the European context, which is characterized by various political entities and governmental institutions. We describe the development of an European Software Defined Radio certification process through a networked approach and we identify the main components including the Development and Testing tools, References Implementation, the Waveform Repository and the Issue Tracking system. The main stakeholders in the certification processes are identified and their roles are described. This paper describes also two specific certification processes, which are particularly important for Software Defined Radio technology: performance benchmark certification and security certification. Performance benchmark certification is used to evaluate the performance of Software Defined Radio against specific technical requirements. Security certification is needed to ensure that the Software Defined Radio platform and the waveforms validate security requirements. The conclusion is that Software Defined Radio certification at European level requires a comprehensive framework, which includes organizational, procedural and technical elements.
