Cortex NuRoN, dedicated to tomorrow's ground segment

Running on standard x86 servers, NuRoN is private or public cloud compatible and offers the utmost flexibility and scalability to ramp up with your company growth. Benefitting from the industry-standard Cortex heritage makes NuRoN the risk-free and easy to deploy Command & Control software modem.

The NuRoN product line was born out of Safran Data Systems' desire to support new space players, and to make the processing operations and tools provided by Cortex modems more accessible. From a simple laptop, datacenter or client’s chosen public/private Cloud service, the new NuRoN software modems are designed to process signals at ever greater speeds, in locations that are physically separate from the antennas where those signals are received and digitized.

A sustainable offer responding to new challenges

The Cortex NuRon can help rationalize the on-site need for electronic equipment and make use of the IT equipment and infrastructure already owned so that it helps reducing dependence on electronic components - ever so increasingly difficult to source.

Furthermore, the flexibility of such a "virtualized" ground segment provides customers with greater freedom in locating the processing for critical missions. In situations where processing had previously been performed near the antenna in remote locations, often entailing complex logistics in terms of personnel and equipment (e.g. for control centers), it is now be possible to site information processing and decision-making in the most logical locations.
