Radio amplifier for networking communications like mobile ad hoc network (MANET) introduced by Triad RF

May 5, 2020
Applications include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) in harsh weather conditions and challenging terrain.

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Triad RF Systems in East Brunswick, N.J., is introducing the TRIAD Amplified Radio (THPR) series that extend the range of wireless mesh or mobile ad hoc network (MANET) and multi-input multi-output radios.

These turnkey high-power radios are to meet challenges of bolting on bi-directional amplifier (BDA) modules to achieve additional output power.

These integrations frequently fail to achieve the size, weight, performance, and cost objectives (SWaP-C) required of long-distance radio links.

Applications include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and ground/surface vehicles that operate in harsh weather conditions and challenging terrain. THPRs are built around Silvus Technologies, Domo Tactical Communications, Microhard Systems, and Doodle Labs radios.

Out of the box, many of these radios can operate at least 50 megabits per second, which typically can support data-intensive tasks like multiple high definition (HD) video feeds.

As advanced unmanned systems continue to improve maximum operation times however, command, control, and throughput requirements over longer distances are moving beyond these radios' stand-alone capabilities, and higher RF power is required.

The THPR series also address power drift issues by including advanced active power control and equalization circuitry to stabilize the RF output power and signal-to-noise ratio delivered to the antenna.

In addition to unmanned/ISR data link applications, THPRs offer a high-power, low-cost, lightweight solution to next-generation C4ISR, Military Mesh, MANET, and tracking antenna systems.
