Persistent Systems, LLC has announced that Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Procerus Technologies (LMPT) has joined the Wave Relay Ecosystem, an industry alliance of unmanned platform and sensor manufacturers using MANET, Persistent´s Wave Relay mobile ad hoc network, the company said.
LMPT will now offer special operators a version of the Indago 3 unmanned aerial system (UAS) that runs on MANET, including the MPU5 radio.
In a MANET, each radio — whether on the ground or in the air — acts as both a receiver and a relay station, so, users can share voice, video, text, sensor and location data without having to depend upon fixed communications infrastructure or a vulnerable central hub.
Persistent´s MPU5 radio connects to the Indago 3 controller, while the lightweight Embedded Module is integrated inside the UAS. The system is available with either an S-Band or L-Band RF module depending on the needs of the user.
Persistent Systems, LLC is a global communications technology company that develops and manufactures a patented and secure Mobile Ad hoc Networking (MANET) system: Wave Relay.
