TrellisWare’s History

TrellisWare Technologies was founded by four innovators in the areas of signal processing and advanced communications. The co-founders spun-off the company from ViaSat in the year 2000 to pursue terrestrial applications of technology that combined  foundations in signal processing innovation with the ability to productize these ideas for the real-world in the commercial sector. TrellisWare continues to work with academia, industry, government, and commercial research labs to solve the most difficult problems by putting theory into practice.

TrellisWare’s technological history includes signal processing, commercial IP licensing, product prototyping, free space optics, networking waveforms, high frequency radio, interference mitigation, special processing, and more. The results lead to worldwide deployments of TrellisWare’s technology to solve communications challenges When Nothing Else Works™.

Revolutionary Signal Processing

The technology developed by TrellisWare has a unique edge, since it is based on the co-founders patented Per-Survivor-Processing (PSP), F-LDPC Forward Error Correction (FEC), and Adaptive Iterative Detection (AID) techniques. The waveforms, signal processing in the physical layer, and the products provide higher throughputs and reliability in harsh environments across all spectrums of communications.

The core technology behind the TSM™ waveform is TrellisWare® Barrage Relay™ networking technology, which is built with the robust signal processing techniques of collaborative combining to outperform traditional MANETs. Barrage Relay is a trusted TRL-9 technology deployed with U.S. Special Operations Forces, and the TSM-X™ waveform is the primary MANET for the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) next generation handheld and manpack radios.
