TSM-X Waveform

The MANET for Real Tactical Environments

Performance for tactical operations

Real Tactical MANET

The TSM-X™ waveform is the latest version of TSM that provides even higher data throughput and new operational capabilities. Because of this, the TSM-X waveform was chosen as the primary tactical mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET) technology for the U.S. Special Operations next generation handheld and next generation manpack radios. TSM-X delivers robust, reliable, and scalable networking to 200+ nodes in a single RF channel, especially for tactical operations in challenging RF environments.

  • Robust – immune to network volatility in highly dynamic networks
  • Reliable – consistent throughput with voice and data services you can count on
  • Scalable – to address small to large and complex networks

Better Performance

Tactical radios with the TSM-X waveform feature dedicated network resources for cellular quality voice and position location information (PLI), and are capable of up to 16 voice channels, and multiple HD video streams. With expanded frequency and bandwidth support, and even higher throughput, TSM-X is the most capable MANET waveform available to address real tactical communications challenges in harsh RF environments.

TSM-X key capabilities are:

  • Up to 16 Mbps of user throughput for single hop traffic, and up to 7.5 Mbps multi-hop multi-cast user traffic
  • Higher throughput supports multi-cast streaming of multiple High Definition (HD) videos over multiple network hops
  • Wide frequency coverage in a single radio platform for better penetration (no user level maintenance required)
    • UHF 225-450 MHz
    • L/S 1250-2600 MHz
  • Configurable bandwidth from 1.2 to 40 MHz supports a broad range of network capacities and spectrum availability
  • TSM-X allows users to customize voice, PLI, and data access to meet demands of different mission profiles
  • The TSM waveform family is fully portable to a variety of Software Defined Radio (SDR) platforms

Like TSM, at the core of TSM-X is TrellisWare’s Barrage Relay™ technology, equipped with a robust physical layer and collaborative combining techniques for simultaneously relaying voice, data, and PLI transmissions. Barrage Relay enables massive scalability and extremely fast network adaptability.
