US Marine Corps selects Silvus radios for ground vehicle comms
Silvus Technologies announced on 6 December that Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) has selected StreamCaster 4400 MANET (mobile area network) radios for use in the Networking On-the-Move (NOTM) communications system uused in the marine corps' Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) and Amphibious Combat Vehicles (ACVs).
According to a company release, StreamCaster radios were selected due to their ability to create a self-organising mesh network across multiple spectrum bands at high data rates.
The 4400 MANET will enable Marine Air-Ground Task Forces to access SATCOM, and connect and network dispersed vehicles, air assets and dismounted units. Marines can use NOTM to transmit information to commanders and increase situational awareness in hostile environments.
