Etherstack was founded in Sydney Australia as an independent developer and licensor of portable, platform agnostic air interface protocol stacks (bearer waveform software) for third-party defence and critical communications radio manufacturers internationally.
Etherstack is now a recognised international specialist in waveforms, and licenses NATO waveforms, sovereign waveforms and waveforms for national security (P25/TETRA/DMR) to radio manufacturers and partner nations with access to the relevant standards in the United States, UK, Australia, Japan and Europe.
This has exposed Etherstack to global radio manufacturing, wireless chipset, telecommunications and tactical communications industries, and to radio platform and system architectures used around the world.
Working with Etherstack
Etherstack works with all equipment vendors equitably. With over two dozen customers from the world’s leading radio manufacturers, Etherstack waveforms have been ported to more than twenty radio platforms used in the field, including the L3Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-152C, L3Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G, Thales AN/PRC-148 (MBITR), Cobham Aerospace NPX136D (Avionic), Rockwell Collins iForce and a wide range of other handheld, in-vehicle, avionic and SIGINT platforms. Etherstack technology is proven to reduce costs and increase interoperability in tactical communications.
With correct waveform design, the real value of software – reusability, upgradeability and portability – can be achieved. Our aim is to minimise our customers’ costs, risk and time to market, whilst providing portable waveform software that is uniquely flexible, reusable and maintainable, and can be optimised for best performance on small and power constrained embedded radio platforms.
