TrellisWare continues to lead the industry in the development and deployment
of next generation Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) with the Katana™ waveform.

Designed to operate in highly contested radio frequency (RF) communication environments, the Katana waveform combines resilient narrowband fast frequency hopping waveform with tactical MANET, supporting critical missions across military, commercial, government, public safety, and uncrewed domains.

The Katana waveform is a Software Defined Radio (SDR) based solution that facilitates communications in near-peer threat environments and provides broad spectrum allocation options for global deployment. Used together with TrellisWare’s TSM waveform, the Katana waveform can provide for the Primary, Alternate, Contingency, and Emergency (PACE) capability for operation in both congested and contested environments.

The Katana waveform represents the modernization of resilient long-range narrowband communications:

  • Provides simultaneous voice, Position Location Information (PLI), and data in a MANET scalable to hundreds of nodes.
  • Highly resilient to sophisticated electronic attack as validated in recent US Department of Defense (DoD) programs and testing.
  • Field-upgradeable for current generation TrellisWare® Software Defined Radios (SDRs) to support both the TSM™ waveform and Katana waveform.
  • Supports Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) security level interoperability with US Army Program of Record (PoR) Warrior Robust Enhanced Networking (WREN) Narrowband (WREN NB) waveform.
