trellisware radio communication systemsTrellisWare’s powerful TSM radio waveforms are based on proprietary Barrage Relay technology, which eliminates routing, minimizes network overhead, and enables a single channel to support more than 800 nodes, allowing the creation of highly scalable networks that are easy to deploy without relying on existing infrastructure.

TrellisWare’s TSM waveforms have been incorporated into a wide range of radio systems and solutions, and the company is constantly collaborating with an ever-growing community of integrators, end users, and government stakeholders. With this ecosystem – known as the Trellis//Sphere – TrellisWare seeks to push the boundaries of what can be achieved with their networking technology. Partners utilising TSM waveforms in their radio products include Thales, L3Harris, and Collins Aerospace.

Manet waveformThe company also provides a range of low-SWaP (size, weight and power) standalone radios and embeddable modules with TSM technology onboard, providing interoperability between different drone and unmanned systems platforms. Options include:

TW-900/950 TSM Shadow Radio – for mounted and dismounted operations, featuring an expanded frequency range and higher throughputs for streaming multiple HD videos

High power radioTW-135 TSM Shadow High-Power Radio – provides high-power transmission for mounted, fixed-site and manpack applications

TW-860 TSM Spirit Radio – compact radio for military, public safety and first responder applications, ideal for deployment at the network edge

Manet radio systemTW-875 TSM Ghost Radio – highly portable small form factor radio for flexible deployment of network relays

TW-870 TSM Ghost Radio Module – easy-to-embed self-contained module covering the UHF, L-Band, and S-Band frequencies

Embedded Radio moduleTW-880 TSM Ghost Embedded Module – smallest, lightest and most capable option for embeddable TSM capabilities

TW-650 TSM Shadow Module – single-board embedded SDR module for SWaP-critical drones and unmanned systems
