TW-650 TSM Shadow™ Module
Software Defined Radio (SDR)
The TW-650 TSM Shadow Module is a software defined radio architected for embedment into a wide range of platforms for communications, network devices, and unmanned systems.
The TW-650 is a single-board radio, built for integration into custom platforms, drones, robotics, and existing systems. The radio module provides reliable connectivity for tactical mobile ad-hoc networking using TrellisWare’s TSM™ waveform. The TW-650 is ideal for applications where size, weight, and power consumption are critical.
Extensive Feature Set
The TW-650 provides a full feature set perfect for custom integration. It includes:
- A full software API for status and control of the radio through an IP interface, and a set of Web-apps hosted on the radio for end-user configuration and monitoring of the TSM network
- High density connectors offering flexibility in system interfaces
- A feature set with built-in AES security and video encoding
RF Spectrum Flexibility
The TW-650 interface module has so many possibilities:
- A single radio, not requiring any manual swap of RF modules
- A single antenna, ideal for small UAVs where MIMO is challenging to install
- Extended frequency coverage: UHF, L-band, and S-band
- Configurable bandwidths ranging from 1.2 to 40 MHz
- Audio, data, video, and positional information
Running TrellisWare’s TSM Release 6 waveform, the TW-650 is fully interoperable with the TrellisWare® family of radios, as well as other radios and devices that run the TSM-X™ waveform.
