SOLO8 Software Defined Radio (Concealment)

Miniature SDR-C for UAVs

SOLO8 Software Defined Radio (Concealment) for UAVsThe SOLO8 Software Defined Radio is an ultra-miniature COFDM digital video transceiver designed specifically for integration into the most space-constrained applications, such as small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS). The system is capable of operating as a Transmitter, Dual Encoder, Standard IP Mesh or MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) IP Mesh.

The system is built on an exceptionally low SWaP footprint and features dual high profile HD H.264 independent video encoders, dual SD/HD-SDI video inputs and two 100mW COFDM transceivers. Connectivity options include Ethernet, RS232 and RS485, as well as USB support for peripherals such as 3G/4G/Wi-Fi dongles.

SOLO8 Software Defined Radio Digital Video TransceiverThe high image quality offered by the SOLO8 makes it ideal for applications such as intelligence gathering, identification and monitoring, and law enforcement. Our video systems use both private and public networks for either wireless transmission or onward distribution of data, making them more secure, reliable and flexible.

NETNode IP Mesh Solutions for Unmanned Vehicles

Our Mesh technology is a proven and flexible MANET (Mobile AdHoc Networking) solution that provides high-capacity multi-domain IP connectivity in challenging environments. Ideal for unmanned vehicles and mobile robotics, the self-forming, self-healing mesh architecture provides advanced capabilities such as wide area surveillance, and drone swarming networks.

Phase 4 Mesh technology is designed for use on a range of dedicated radio platforms and is available with 2 Watt and 5 Watt power options. Phase 5 is our next-generation Mesh software designed for both dedicated radio platforms and Software Defined Radio systems, offering Multiple Input/Multiple Output (MIMO) capabilities for double data throughput (25Mbps) as well as all the benefits of standard Mesh.

NETNode IP Mesh Radio Phase 4 – Robust 5W

Long range NETNode5W-4R for Advanced Robotics, UGVs and USVs

NETNode IP Mesh Radio Phase 4 - Robust 5W for RoboticsThe NETNode Robust 5W delivers secure data exchange between wireless Nodes in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations and is ideally suited for use in surveillance, command and control, or robotic/autonomous applications, including Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs).

Up to sixteen NETNode Phase 4 IP Radios can be combined in a fluid self-forming, self-healing mesh that exchanges data on a single frequency, simplifying frequency management. The entire mesh occupies just 2.5MHz of bandwidth, with other bandwidth options available.

NETNode radios employ our unique DTC COFDM modulation scheme, offering excellent RF penetration and performance in the presence of multipath. With 5W of transmit power and up to 14.6Mb/s of IP data (data rate depends on mode, number of nodes and range between nodes), these radios are a proven solution for extended range communications in the demanding environments of unmanned systems.
