TrellisWare Technologies, Inc. demonstrates with industry leaders the control of UAVs and streaming real-time video over its Tactical Scalable Mobile Ad-hoc (MANET) network
Marine Corps Base Camp LeJeune, North Carolina, August 04, 2015 – TrellisWare Technologies, a world leader in wireless communications solutions and signal processing innovations, collaborated with Datron World Communications, Aeryon Labs Inc., and Black Diamond Advanced Technologies to demonstrate control of the Aeryon SkyRanger™ small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) and distribution of aerial real-time video over a TSM network.
Connected by the TrellisWare® robust and infrastructure-less TSM network, the SkyRanger sUAS sent live video over the TSM network, viewable to every user with an enabled Android™ device or PC. In addition, the TSM network provided multi-hop extension to the UAS control link. Black Diamond’s APEx Predator System enabled communications from the TSM radio to multiple end user devices and provided a single power management solution.
Datron’s Program Manager for UAS flew the SkyRanger sUAS equipped with a TSM radio, enabling streaming video and thermal imaging from the SkyRanger sUAS platform over the TSM network. This capability offers a variety of benefits for applications such as ISR, convoy and perimeter security, emergency response and mapping. Without having to use point-to-point data links, the UAV and TSM capabilities offer a seamless solution that keeps warfighters out of harm’s way while achieving situational awareness.
“We are excited to team up with Datron World Communications, Aeryon Labs Inc. and Black Diamond Advanced Technologies to showcase the power of combining unmanned systems and a robust mobile ad-hoc network such as TSM,” said Tom Carter, TrellisWare’s President and CEO. “This gives every mobile user real-time access to aerial ISR feed, enhancing their effectiveness and safety.”
