Powerful Wireless Communication Solutions
TrellisWare solves the serious communications challenges of tomorrow – today. We foster a collaborative environment for researchers and engineers alike to innovate solutions that address real-world customer needs in complex wireless environments. Our research and development team combines sophisticated sensing, signal processing, machine learning and networking protocols to realize novel communications solutions that adapt to dynamic environments. We transform cutting-edge theory into practical solutions.
Extending The Power Of The Network
TrellisWare researchers and engineers explore the boundaries of time, frequency and space through advanced architectures, sophisticated processing, efficient protocols, and real-time environmental awareness to create powerful wireless networks.
Software Defined Heterogeneous Networking (SDHN)
Providing resilient communications is at the center of TrellisWare’s technology focus. SDHN separates the control plane from the data plane to enable resilient high throughput networks.
Harnessing The Power Of Technologies
Cutting-edge signal processing combined with efficient implementation is at the heart of TrellisWare’s technology. From modern codes and iterative processing to machine-learning techniques, TrellisWare continues to pioneer innovation that transitions into real world applications.
Signal Processing and Machine Learning
Signal processing combined with machine learning is the foundation of TrellisWare’s advanced communication technologies. TrellisWare uses these core technologies to implement sophisticated yet highly efficient solutions that address communications challenges.
- Ensuring reliable communications in congested and contested environments
- Maximizing spectrum efficiency
- Providing highly resilient line-of-sight (LoS) and beyond line-of-sight (BLoS) waveforms
Both active and passive sensing techniques provide the information needed to effectively operate in highly congested and contested operational environments. These underlying capabilities are embedded into TrellisWare waveforms and provide the critical data for machine learning algorithms and network protocols.
Operating in Interference
TrellisWare leverages both hardware and software technologies to ensure resilient communications in the presence of interference. The Joint Analog and Digital Cancellation (JADIC) hardware/software-based system effectively cancels intentional interference. TrellisWare’s software only applique removes the interfering signal from the intended communications using machine learning and sophisticated signal processing.
TrellisWare implements distributed machine learning in resource constrained platforms to enhance network operations in complex spectrum environments. Network slicing, dynamic spectrum access (DSA), adaptive QoS, and Auto-PACE (Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency) are examples of TrellisWare’s networking solutions that increase spectrum efficiency, enhance resilience and simplify network management across dynamic environments.
Distributed Signal Processing
Distributed signal processing is at the core of TrellisWare’s network advantage. Examples of key networking innovations:
- Distributed beamforming that exploits the power of the network to extend range, increase data throughput or for reduced detectability and added resilience.
- Distributed network localization that leverages distributed machine learning to provide position location in GPS denied environments.
Dynamic Spectrum Access
TrellisWare’s Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) incorporates distributed sensing and a distributed policy engine for a simultaneous increase in communications resilience and system spectral efficiency.
Single Frequency-Simultaneous Transmit and Receive (SF-STAR)
TrellisWare’s SF-STAR technology combines analog and digital interference cancellation to double spectrum efficiency when compared to traditional Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) systems.
Waveform and Modem Technologies
TrellisWare continues to develop advanced waveforms and modems for highly resilient communications across the spectrum continuum. Our flagship physical layer waveform technologies range from narrowband to wideband, include high-speed and robust modulation as well as cognitive techniques to adapt automatically to dynamic and degraded operating conditions. New waveform and modem development initiatives include Troposcatter and Free Space Optical communications.
TrellisWare’s waveform and modem provide high-throughput on-the-move or quick-halt communications, reducing the dependency on SATCOM and providing throughput significantly higher than that of traditional HF technologies.
Free Space Optical (FSO) Communications
TrellisWare’s waveform and modem provide highly resilient FSO communications. The optical waveform uses channel state prediction algorithms for maximum throughput in scintillating channel conditions along with capacity approaching forward error correction for high reliability - from kbps to Gbps. The FSO modem is easily integrated into systems without requiring complex adaptive optics.
