Technological advancements in Software Defined Radios SDR, high-speed serial buses, and high-performance computing systems have brought us a power reduction breakthrough in military wireless communications. This thesis develops and analyzes a model to demonstrate that an enterprise computing architecture for Software Defined Radios results in significant power savings between 11 and 13 under ordinary operational loads. The thesis presents easy-to-understand mathematical power consumption models and simulations of general military communications systems in an Expeditionary Command, Control, Communications, and Computers C4 scenario. The comparison of regular versus enterprise SDR architectures exposes the power savings realized in the Enterprise Wireless Communications EWC architecture.
