Government operations require high-performance mesh radio systems for a wide range of mission scenarios. Our Smart Radio platform featuring Mesh Rider technology provides robust Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET) that are deployed in the most challenging operating environments. The high-speed data links are secure against infiltration, resilient against interference, and frequency agile for global deployment.
Quick global deployment flexibility of equipment is a very important requirement for the field operations. DIU tasked Doodle Labs to develop multi-band Smart Radio Helix that can be software controlled to operate in one of the six important DoD frequency bands. Doodle Labs patented Mesh Rider technology is employed here to meet this objective.
Helix operates on six bands (M1-M6) within 1625-2510 MHz. This frequency range removes a large operational complexity for government customers who have deployments around the world.
The Smart Radios are able to meet the various data speed and distance requirements. The mobile assets will always stay connected with field-tested aerial data links up to 116 kilometers. Even at 10 km, the Smart Radio can support streaming of crystal clear 4K surveillance video from a drone and even multiple video streams can be multi-cast to several ground based control stations.
The Smart Radio’s data aware PHY and MAC provide the most reliable and low-latency URLLC for sensitive Command and Control data. Additionally, it optimizes the radio link to carry crystal clear 4K and HD video streaming over long range. Smart Radio’s extremely low SWaP make it suitable for easy man-pack operation. The Smart Radio’s mesh provides node relay for performing C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) over a very long range.
Doodle Labs family of Smart Radios allow a careful trade-off in range and penetration. Our customers have achieved more than a Km LOS range even with low height robots.
The Mesh Rider OS features breadcrumb Relay mode to extend the range and go around the obstructions. One of our customers has successfully demonstrated up to 11 hops with video transmission.
Multi-band Smart Radios with mesh can effectively block any attempts at jamming the communications. The radios can hop over different bands to reduce the possibility of detection. The multi-band Smart Radios meshed together can find alternate communication paths even when one frequency path is blocked by jammers.
Doodle Labs recognizes that a well integrated Smart Radio platform is more valuable to our customers. So we are actively working with our industry partners and collaborators to extend the platform’s capabilities. Smart Radio has been integration tested with the leading tools, standards and ecosystems used in many industries. This versatility ensures that our customers can quickly develop advanced MANET solutions.
The Smart Radio is form factor compatible across the frequency range – 100 MHz to 6 GHz, making it as simple as dropping in the model for the required frequency band across all Federal and NATO Bands, while eliminating the need to redesign the equipment.
Smart Radios are NDAA compliant and can be used by all US Govt agencies.
Additionally, we can configure the radio to meet wide variety of band/channel plans for special projects.
The table below shows the models available for Government frequency bands. We have worked with the federal agencies to obtain the J/F-12 certifications to simplify the ATO applications (Authorization to Operate).
