Silvus Develops LPI/LPD Waveform for US Military – Drones Information
Tactical radio to provide LPI / LPD enhancements to the Warfighter
Silvus Technologies, Inc. was recently awarded an OPTION Funding from the US Army C5ISR Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland as part of a research and development project. The contract, valued at over $ 2 million, is titled Protected Communications for Manned / Unmanned Teams, or PCM. The project aims to develop high-throughput, secure and unobservable communication skills for manned / unmanned teaming operations.
As part of the PCM contract, Silvus developed a waveform that enables improved LPI / LPD operation. As part of the current OPTION effort, Silvus is integrating many of its recently developed functions to operate in conjunction with the LPI / LPD functions of the PCM waveform.
- The Silvus MANET Interference Avoidance Module (MAN-IA) enables tactical radios to change their operating frequency when communication is affected by interference
- The new MANET Interference Cancellation (MAN-IC) module from Silvus enables tactical radios to spatially filter out interference
- The new MANET-Power Control (MAN-PC) module from Silvus enables the radios to control their transmission power in order to enable more discreet communication
“The result of this effort,” said Dr. Babak Daneshrad, founder and CEO of Silvus Technologies.
“It will be a robust waveform running on Silvus’ StreamCaster radios, combining a powerful suite of anti-jam and LPI / LPD functions to enable the warfighter to communicate robustly and securely in crowded and competitive environments . “
Silvus Technologies is the developer of the MN-MIMO (Mobile Networked MIMO) waveform, a MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc Networking) feature that leverages the latest advances in MIMO technology to improve throughput and robustness. This function is at the heart of the Silvus StreamCaster radios, a family of MIMO-enabled tactical radios. It was recently selected as the MANET radio solution for Phase 2 of the NGCV RCV (Next Generation Combat Vehicle Robotic Combat Vehicle) program with a contract value of approximately USD 3 million.
The PCM efforts are expected to continue through the fall of 2020 and culminate in a series of field demonstrations. Silvus will continue to expand the technology to bring these new features to market quickly.
