The new Lower C-Band Radio Module will also play a critical role in the Unmanned Ground Robotics (UGV) market, since this frequency band is a requirement for multiple programs of record that are actively being competed. Persistent, currently the largest provider of communication systems to the UGV market, has been working with many UGV platform providers to ensure that the Lower C-Band Module meets and exceeds all programmatic communication requirements.
"Radio modules with 6 W of transmit power and 3x3 MIMO technology mean that soldiers can operate UGV systems from much greater distances. UGV systems are typically utilized to inspect or neutralize explosive devices. Every bit of range and performance that we can offer directly increases soldier safety, and we designed our modules with this in mind," commented Eric Stern, Director of Engineering.
