USN works with industry to test satellite-free ship-to-shore comms
Sentinel Robotic Solutions (SRS) has demonstrated the ability to provide ship-to-shore video, voice and data, without the need to use a satellite, from a ship close to 90nmi over the horizon.
An SRS-led team included Silvus Technologies and Optimum Solutions. It supported the USN Surface Combat Systems Center at Wallops Island on the project, which was funded by the Virginia Institute for Spaceflight & Autonomy.
Participants held a full-scale demonstration of a Silvus-based mesh network, with high-fidelity voice, high-definition video streaming, and high-bandwidth data transfer from land-based stations to over-the-horizon vessels.
‘This innovative demonstration has given the end-user a more cost-effective and reliable means of getting secure information from ship to shore without using expensive satellite technology,’ SRS claimed in a statement.
