Wireless Broadband Solutions for Unmanned Aerial Systems

The UAS industry is building advanced drones that require highly reliable, low latency, and high speed connectivity while on the move. 

Smart Radio - Lowest SWaP Mesh Datalink

Smart Radio with Mesh Rider can send C&C + HD video on a single data-link from a flyer. Our customers have achieved more than 100 Km range even with a small 3 dBi antenna on the flyer. Mesh Rider, our proprietary MANET, is pushing the envelope on swarming capabilities. For more details, visit the Smart Radio home page. 
Doodle Labs UAS Datalink Solution

Doodle Labs has worked with many customers and industry partners to develop a best-in-class UAS radio platform. As a testament, the United States DoD and Defense Innovation Unit have chosen the Doodle Labs Smart Radio as the primary radio vendor for the Blue UAS ecosystem. Additionally, the U.S. Air Force has provided sponsorship to further develop advanced features into the Smart Radio platform.

Long-Range and High Throughput

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.

C4ISR on an Ultra-Reliable Datalink

The Smart Radio’s mesh provides multi-hop relay for performing C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) over a very long range. The 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. The distance based Automatic Transmit Power Control (ATPC) technology conserves battery power to extend the mission time.

SWaP-C

All UAS need small size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). Flight times are directly correlated to the size and weight of the flyer. Smart Radios are available in multiple form factors and are as light as just 25 grams.

Low Latency C&C, Video, Telemetry

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.

Frequency Flex

The 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.

AI

As UAS become more advanced, onboard Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a significant role. Doodle Labs has seamlessly integrated the Smart Radio with the leading AI engines from Jetson and Qualcomm.

Remote ID

As per the latest FAA directive, all drones manufactured after Q3 2022 must broadcast their identification. Doodle Labs is one of the pioneers to integrate this capability in the Smart Radio, thus removing the burden of extra components on the drones.

Integration
BVLOS

The multi-hop relay capabilities of the Smart Radios extend the operating range. One of our customers has successfully demonstrated up to 11 hops with video transmission. The self-forming and self-healing mesh simplifies drone swarming.
