Elistair and Silvus technologies combined their expertise to provide mobile-networked multiple input and multiple output (MN-MIMO) networking by embedding a Silvus Streamcaster 4200 MIMO radio into an Elistair Orion tethered UAS. The tethered UAS provides ad-hoc networking for the battlefield, to enhance situational awareness and facilitate communications and surveillance missions.
With the integration of Silvus mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET) technology, Elistair tethered drones will help create rapidly deployable C3 networks, enabling users to share voice and data over greater distances and obstacles. Powered from the ground and flying at up to 100 meters, the Orion tethered drone now provides a combination of persistent ISR and tactical communications to increase situational awareness and connectivity.
Automated, secure and with a small logistical footprint, Elistair’s Orion tethered UAS is designed for extended flight times and austere environments.
