Triad’s heritage as an advanced RF system and multi-function module supplier allows us to work closely with many unmanned systems firms, prime contractors, integrators, and manufacturers of the most advanced radio systems in the industry.
We worked with world leading UAS companies to integrate, test, and troubleshoot links with the help of our range extending BDAs and multi-function RF systems. In that time, we encountered countless ISR links that were not even close to closing the link distance they were designed for due to many controllable factors. We eventually became experts on all aspects of the ISR Data Link system, quickly identifying common problems and improving integration methods across all subjects, including RF, Power Supply, and Electromagnetic Interference
To best serve our customers in this space, we launched our Advanced Data Link division in 2018. Our team has the formula for creating ISR links on any platform imaginable, operating anywhere from UHF to Ku band at distances exceeding 200km. We utilize our THPR-series custom crafted radio systems, a field-proven line of antennas.
Below we’ve listed products and datasheets relevant to this application type. If you have questions regarding our products or areas of expertise, please get in touch today!
|Turn-key ISR Link Design / Manufacture Services||Through the introduction of our ISR Link Services Division, Triad leverages decades of experience manufacturing RF hardware for world-leading UAS. We have become a trusted partner in the design, manufacture, and fielding of ultra-long range, high-data rate links. Using our in-house designed High Power Radio Systems (THPRs), BDA modules, and our new product line of Auto Tracking Antenna Systems, we’re generating a track record of engineering links that are a fraction of the cost, size and power consumption of the competition.

|TTS 2.0 Tracking System
||Compact, mobile tracking antenna system that seamlessly integrates with Triad’s THPR high power radio systems. 100-200 mile MIMO links are easily achieved for high capacity HD video and IP based, mesh-networked MANET links. The TTS is gimbal-stabilized with an internal INS and AHRS system, and uses Cursor On Target (CoT) data from the radio, or an external GPS source to perform auto acquisition and tracking with no user intervention required. A variety of single through quad antenna and feed configurations are available for all bands from UHF, L,S, and C, up to Ku Band. Request a quote today!|
|THPR Series Radios
||Triad’s THPR Series combines industry-leading radios in their OEM / Embedded Module forms with Triad’s state-of the art MIMO bi-directional amplifiers and RF sub-assemblies. This eliminates the need to integrate disparate stand-alone components, when greater range or data throughput is needed over stock radio performance. The THPR solution is of significantly lower SwAP than traditional radio-accessory integration. It also enhances the overall usability of the system by incorporating innovative SoC-based RF monitoring, with real-time power measurements and antenna diagnostics. Request a quote today!|
|TSYS1044||Triad designed this Dual-Band, Quad MIMO, High Data Rate Line of Sight radio for a maritime platform, to enable ship-ship communications at data rates in excess of 70 Mbps. The TSYS utilizes an SC4400 radio and enhances its capabilities by boosting its power up to 200W composite for UHF (400-450 MHz) and 100W for C band (4400-5000 MHz). It also contains a single board computer, fiber-ethernet conversion, and has been tailored to communicate on both the ship’s internal tactical network and the Mobile Tactical Wide Area Network (MTWAN). It has passed many extremely harsh environmental and electrical testing, including the test methods from MIL-STD-910D Shock and MIL-STD-461E EMI required for this Australian Navy platform.

||The TTRM1192 is an example of the sophisticated, detailed integration work performed when Triad is chosen as your ISR link engineering partner. This assembly was custom-designed for a long range UAS. It integrates a DTC Solo8 Mesh transmitter, a video encoder card, and a customized Triad BDA that is capable of 3W of linear OFDM output. An amplifier bypass function is built in to conserve power when close to the GCS, and turn the BDA on at long distances when an SNR increase is required to maintain the link. Request a quote today!|
