Doodle Labs is a leading developer of state-of-the-art wireless mesh network technology for commercial, government and military UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles), robotics and Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) applications.

Our field-proven long-distance wireless datalink solutions are ideal for OEMs and system integrators of nLOS (near line of sight) and BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) drones, unmanned systems and ground control stations, providing the ability to create resilient private networks with superior reliability and performance and minimal integration effort.

Mesh Rider®

Mobile mesh technology for resilient private networks

mesh rider - mobile mesh technologyMesh Rider® is a powerful patented mobile mesh technology designed for dynamic mobile applications such as networks of drones and robotic vehicles. This state-of-the-art wireless broadband technology features ultra-low latency and automatic band and channel switching capabilities, and powers all our Mesh Rider® Radios.

The innovative and cutting-edge waveform ensures reliable and high-throughput datalinks for unmanned vehicles over extremely long distances. Built-in smart capabilities allow radio systems to dynamically adapt to challenging RF scenarios while maintaining connectivity.

With the ability to create scalable self-forming and self-healing Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANET), Mesh Rider® offers dynamic and effective radio communications solutions to increasingly complex industrial problems.

Wearable Mesh Rider® Radio

Highly portable multiband radio for connecting teams and robotics

Wearable smart radioThe Wearable Mesh Rider® radio allows any internet-enabled device to be connected a private wireless mesh network, allowing seamless communication between operator teams and UAVs or ground robotics at extended ranges without the need for existing infrastructure.

The rapidly deployable radio provides up to 8 hours of battery life, with over 80 Mbps of available throughput for real-time voice, data and video communications. The MIL-STD-compliant unit is available in commercial and defense frequency configurations.

Helix Mesh Rider® Radio

Battle-proven MANET radio platform for government and defense

The Helix configuration of our Mesh Rider® Radio Platform is designed to meet the extreme requirements of government and defense applications, and covers multiple Federal bands, including M1-M6 (1625 – 2500 MHz), L + S, and NATO C-Band + Upper WiFi in a single radio.

This configuration has been developed in conjunction with the US Department of Defense’s DIU and AFWERX, and is compatible with all drone manufacturers on the Blue UAS list. The highly capable FIPS 140-3 compliant radio provides the highest level of encryption and delivers tactical interference avoidance capabilities in highly contested environments.MANET radio

Industrial WiFi Transceivers

IioT transceivers with an ultra-low SWaP footprint

Industrial WiFi TransceiversDoodle Labs’ forthcoming 802.11AX Industrial WiFi Transceiver is designed to provide unparalleled performance for a variety of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Featuring a significant upgrade over previous generations of WiFi transceivers, the new unit delivers an overall throughput increase of 300% over an entire network, with up to 75% lower latency.

The low-SWaP transceiver weighs just 12 grams with a footprint smaller than a credit card, and is built with high-quality components that are individually tested and calibrated to ensure consistent and class-leading performance.
