Keys to Successful Naval Defense MIMO/MANET Radio System Deployment

Naval vessels operate in a dynamic environment that requires a wide array of communication links or off-ship bearers. Since the early days of spark-gap Morse code transmitters that allowed for wireless communication over distance, maritime assets have sought additional communication methods for safety reasons and to allow them to expand their operations and missions. This never-ending thirst for transferring more information over greater distances with greater numbers of end points has led to a dizzying hodgepodge of transceivers, amplifiers, and antenna equipment, all battling for height and optimal locations on the topside masts on modern naval vessels.

The introduction of unmanned systems is a powerful strategy to combat these adversaries and allow the world’s navies to do more with less. For this reason, designers of naval vessels understand the need for autonomous, high-capacity bearers that can operate independently in A2/AD environments, adding and removing members automatically and seamlessly. This need has led to amazing advancements over the past years with Mobile Ad-Hoc Networking (MANET) radios.
