Earlier this year, Triad RF Systems joined forces with the U.S. Army DEVCOM C5ISR Center and PEO C3T in Lakehurst, New Jersey to support groundbreaking research for the U.S. Army's Aerial Tier Network (ATN). This ongoing project will help inform the Army’s future modernization efforts to bring reliable, high-bandwidth military communications into difficult terrain, including non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments. As the landscape of multi-domain warfare continues to evolve, the ATN project is just one way to keep soldiers and assets seamlessly connected to the larger operational network.
Extensive testing and experimentation took place over several days at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, across various frequency bands and weather conditions. The primary objective was to simulate how the ATN could relay data between two groups without direct line-of-sight communication infrastructure. An aircraft containing a radio serving as a network node was flown in a circle over the test area, while data was relayed via the aerial node between two mobile ground station vehicles.
Triad supported this testing with several of our Triad High Power Radio (THPR) systems configured for the Silvus Technologies StreamCaster MANET/Mesh Network ecosystem:
Our fully integrated and tested line of Triad High Power Radio systems are engineered to deliver long-range, high throughput MIMO performance while working to eliminate many of the issues commonly experienced during complex RF system integration, including: drift in gain or power over temperature and frequency, signal-to-noise ratio, co-channel RFI issues, radio setting configuration issues, and other variables that can add up to degradation in performance or failed links. Triad RF is committed to eliminating these issues before they can become mission-stopping problems for our customers and their end-users.
We appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with the U.S. Army DEVCOM C5ISR Center, PEO C3T, and the dedicated support personnel at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst during these tests. This research underscores our unwavering commitment to advancing military technology to better serve our soldiers and their deployed technology.
The future of military communication is taking shape, and Triad RF Systems is at the forefront of this exciting development, working tirelessly to ensure the success of our armed forces. Stay tuned for more technical insights from this groundbreaking test as they become available.
