Silvus Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of advanced Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) communications technology, has announced the latest addition to its growing line of communications products for the Unmanned Systems market – the SC4200 MIMO Radio.
Building on the capabilities of its field-proven predecessors (SC3822 and SC3500), the SC4200 radio provides the user a smaller alternative that is more powerful and less expensive. The SC4200 is available in a ruggedized IP67 chassis or as a PCB board stack for embedded installations. The SC4200 can utilize an optional twist-lock battery for portability, or traditional power via the unmanned system.
As operational scenarios become increasingly complex, the warfighter needs simple and effective communications solutions which allow the warfighter to focus on the mission at hand. The SC4200’s new Push to Talk capability (PTT) allows this radio to not only provide superior command, control and video telemetry, but unmatched voice capabilities to round out a communication suite for the battlefield and beyond.
Like Silvus’ existing IP-based radio offerings, SC4200 utilizes COFDM modulation and advanced MIMO antenna processing techniques to provide unmatched range, throughput, and mobility, even in the most challenging environments—from pure line-of-sight (LOS) to extreme non-line-of-sight (NLOS). Silvus’ radios facilitate reliable duplex connectivity between 2 or more radios, forming a self-healing, self-forming mesh network that continually optimizes itself in response to changing environmental conditions. Silvus’ proprietary approach to MIMO provides enhanced spectral efficiency, combining high quality video, and C2 data on a single link, and eliminating the need for multiple radios on an unmanned platform.
Silvus will be showcasing the SC4200 MIMO Radio at XPONENTIAL in New Orleans May 3-5, booth 849.
