MANET Radios for Critical Platforms

P6000 are defence-grade IP data links that provide a light, compact, robust, and affordable solution for airborne and ground communications. A higher power version delivering up to 8W is available for long-range missions.

P6000 radios implement innovative synchronisation algorithms specifically designed to keep communication performance under high dynamics.  This results in the unique broadband solution in the market that shows no signal degradation after take-off.

FDMA and TDMA multiplexing allow point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and mesh networks (MANET) with configurable time slots, data relay, and dynamic routing capabilities. Based on a proprietary channel access scheme, any network topology can be implemented without the need for external timing sources.

Multiple devices can be connected simultaneously to the Ethernet and serial interfaces, centralising data links for C2,  telemetry, audio, and video in a single device.
