IFLY Solar Powered VHF Radio Repeater(Defensor-BL8) merged MANET Technology with Radio. It solves many problems that today's wireless radio repeaters face. IFLY Defensor-BL8 is a industrial grade and portable solar powered repeater for VHF land mobile, VHF Marine & Aviation and remote mountain-top sites for covering a self-healing, mobile and flexible network. It wireless connects individual radio units(Defensor-T4) and other IFLY bodyworn radio repeaters(Defensor-BM3) through a mobile ad-hoc network (MANET)based mesh topology to relay tactical clear audio and GPS data in an emergency disaster rescue or special event.

Quick Installation

Quick Installation Guide

Rapid deployment within 10mins: Defensor-BL8 Military Rapid Deployment Portable Repeater is special designed for emergency events. Once the special event happend, Defensor-BL8 can be installed within 10mins to cover a big area with stable communication network.

Infrastructure-less: Defensor-BL8 is special for remote area without any infrastructure such as cellular network coverage, IP connectivity, Power line and any other wired link.

Plug and Play: Defensor-BL8 is push to start for users. No need any configuration. All the data between different base station will be automatical data synchronization.

Application--Rapidly build a communication network between 3 cities.

Communication network between cities

In the application above, the defensor-BL8 was installed at a high place in 3 cities to facilitate interoperability. The total communication range is 160km. Within the coverage, the individula unit and manpack base station can move freely to carry the task and communicate with each other.
