MANET Radios for Critical Platforms

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

FDMA and TDMA multiplexing allow point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and mesh networks (MANET) with configurable time slots and dynamic routing. Any network topology can be deployed without the need for external infrastructure.

P6000 radios implement unique frequency offset compensation algorithms that keep communication performance at hypersonic speeds.

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.

The Transmission Security (TRANSEC) option enables Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS), adding low probability of interception (LPI) and detection (LPD) capabilities.
