Broadcast Microwave Services has announced the commercial release of its new bi-directional communication system named BMTS-M. The system was on display for the first time at the AUVSI Xponential trade show, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Georgia World Congress Center August 16-19, 2021.
The end-to-end solution begins with an aircraft mounted transceiver (BMTS-MA), which contains everything needed for high quality, reliable and secure streaming of high-definition mission critical video and data across long distances within the mesh network. The system is powered by a Persistent Systems 3X3 MIMO radio which operates on the Wave Relay network. The transceiver communicates with a ground based outdoor transceiver (BMTS-ME) and an indoor communications and control unit (BMTS-MI), completing the end-to-end solution.
“We are excited to launch this new product, which is built to serve the needs of our global customers including federal, state and local law enforcement agencies who require robust and secure video and data transmission,” stated Harry Davoody, CEO of BMS. “The footprint of the new transceiver is the same as our current HC4 transmitter, which offers customers an easy path to upgrade to resilient bi-directional communications.”
The BMTS-M is an ultra long-range system optimized for air-to-ground, ship-to-ship, or ship-to-shore broadcasts of mission critical information. The DO-160 certified bi-directional broadband system is highly scalable and uses very efficient H.265 compression with secure encryption. Multiple live airborne tests of the system in Southern California have consistently achieved HD video over 100 mile distances.
