Silvus introduces the SC3800 MIMO radio at AUVSI 2012

As operational scenarios become increasingly complex, the warfighter needs simple and effective communications solutions which allow them to focus on the mission at hand.

Los Angeles, Calif., July 27, 2012 - Silvus Technologies, Inc. a leading developer of advanced Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) communications technology, is proud to announce the SC3800 as the latest addition to its growing line of communications products for the Unmanned Systems market.



Building on the capabilities of its field-proven predecessors (SC3000 and SC3500), the SC3800 radio provides dual-band operation in a variety of licensed and unlicensed bands from 400MHz - 2.7GHz and 4GHz - 6GHz. The SC3800 is available in a ruggedized IP67 chassis or as a PCB board stack for embedded installations.


As operational scenarios become increasingly complex, the warfighter needs simple and effective communications solutions which allow them to focus on the mission at hand. The SC3800's new Network Management GUI provides an intuitive way for the operator to immediately evaluate the signal strength and traffic at each point in a mesh network, allowing them to identify and resolve any bottlenecks or weak links. The Network Management GUI is accessible via the SC3800's web interface using any standard web browser.

Like Silvus' existing IP-based radio offerings, SC3800 utilizes COFDM modulation and advanced MIMO antenna processing techniques to provide unmatched range, throughput, and mobility, even in the most challenging environments-from pure line-of-sight (LOS) to extreme non-line-of-sight (NLOS). Silvus' radios facilitate reliable duplex connectivity between 2 or more radios, forming a self-healing, self-forming mesh network that continually optimizes itself in response to changing environmental conditions. Silvus' proprietary approach to MIMO provides enhanced spectral efficiency, combining high quality video, and C2 data on a single link, and eliminating the need for multiple radios on an unmanned platform.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
