Smart Radio Key Features

Smart Radio provides an ultra-reliable, low latency, long-range, high-throughput link to implement industrial-grade private wireless mobile mesh Networks.

Performance RF

Leveraging the state-of-the-art COFDM and MIMO technologies for exceptional multipath and NrLOS performance in harsh, noisy environments, Mesh Rider waveform is ideal for high throughput (up to 100 Mbps) Private Wireless Networks.

C&C + Video

Advanced traffic prioritization of Ultra Reliable Low Latency Channel (URLLC) for all Command and Control traffic and concurrent multicast video streaming of 4k video on the same link. The typical link latency is under 10 ms. (Watch URLLC demo video)

Long Range

With up to 1W of RF power, maximum allowed by the govt. regulations to achieve long data links. Our customers routinely achieve over 20 km (12 miles) for transmitting HD video.  The Mesh Rider waveform has been field proven for a 116 km (70 miles) link.

Low SWaP-C

Size, Weight, Power and Cost are by far the most important requirements for airborne applications. The feature rich embedded Smart Radio is one of the lowest SWaP-C radios in the industry. It is tiny and weighs under 30 grams.

Interference Avoidance

Spectrum Scan monitors in-band interference and provides the capability to switch channels. The advanced filtration and frequency-band shifting techniques are designed to minimize noise and block out-of-band signals. Dual-band radios add redundancy for high network availability.


Frequency Flex

Doodle Labs’ patented hybrid SDR technology enables a large family of form factor compatible models in 100 MHz to 6 GHz frequency bands. Simply swap out the radio based on the end-customer or country requirements.

Under a development contract with DIU, Doodle Labs has developed a hex-band Smart Radio Helix for global deployments.

Mobile Mesh

Self-forming and self-healing, dynamic zero delay roaming mesh capabilities improve the network resiliency.

Multi-hop relay can extend the range for BVLOS and Drone Swarming. Field demonstrated HD video transmission over 12 hops.

MIL Specs

The radios are characterized against several MIL standards for Rugged construction and can operate in extreme temperature conditions from -40°C to +85°C. 

The Smart Radios are selected by Defense Innovation Unit and Air Force for special programs.


The Smart Radio’s built-in 256-bit AES encryption engine is certified with Federal NIST standard FIPS 140-3 (in progress) and meets the mandatory NSA requirements for mission-critical applications.  

The Smart Radios are NDAA compliant for all US Govt agency use. 

Fast Integration

Meticulously designed for various use-cases. The Smart Radios are available in Wearable, Embedded, External and OEM form factors.

Doodle Labs has custom developed Antennas that enhance the Smart Radio performance.

Doodle Labs provides comprehensive design-in documents in the Technical Library.

Remote Management

Easy to use GUI interface for local and remote configuration of the radios. The Smart Radio supports simple SSH, UCI and SNMP commands. Over-the-Air (OTA) firmware upgrade capability simplifies the field maintenance.

Extensible Features

The Smart Radio’s Mesh Rider OS leverages the feature rich and extensible OpenWrt/Linux. Users can install their own software apps to further extend and customize the functionality.

Doodle Labs provides an extensive set of documents and support to simplify integration of the Smart Radio. Please visit our Smart Radio Technical Library for more information.

Smart Radio Models Index

See the full index below for models in many frequency bands and use case optimized form factors. Additionally, we can configure the operating frequency anywhere from 100 MHz ~ 6 GHz and meet wide variety of band/channel plans for special projects. All Smart Radios are NDAA compliant for US Govt agency use. 

License Free Bands

Our license free band products can be purchased from online distributors.

902-928 MHz
License Free Band – USA, Canada, Mexico, Central, South and Latin Americas, Australia, New Zealand, China, S. Korea, Taiwan and Singapore

The 900 MHz band is license free for use in many countries around the world. At lower frequencies, the radio signals can travel farther and penetrate through the walls and vegetation, providing better NrLOS operation. The 900 MHz band provides an excellent alternative to the crowded 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band for long range links.
