Title: ANSI/VITA 49.0-2015, VITA Radio Transport (VRT) Standard

Abstract: The VITA Radio Transport (VRT) standard defines a transport-layer protocol designed to promote interoperability between RF (radio frequency) receivers and signal processing equipment in a wide range of applications. These include spectral monitoring, communications, radar, and others. In support of this variety of applications, the VRT protocol provides a variety of formatting options that allow the transport layer to be optimized for each application. VRT also enables high-precision timestamping to provide time synchronization between multiple receiver channels.

Title: ANSI/VITA 49.1-2015, VITA Radio Link Layer Standard

Abstract: This document describes an open standard for an optional encapsulation protocol for VITA-49.0 (VRT) packets.

Title: ANSI/VITA 49A-2015, Spectrum Survey Interoperability Specification

Abstract: This document specifies an interoperability specification that is applicable to spectrum-survey applications. It is intended to foster high-throughput and adaptable processing in a large-scale environment. It specifically considers the needs of devices based around 32-/64-bit general-purpose processors (GPP) and FPGAs that utilize Internet Protocol (IP) as the underlying transport between processing devices.
