1.What is a Tactical MANET Radio?

Tactical MANET Radios are the wireless mobile radio devices which are developed based on mobile ad hoc network (MANET) for buiding up a continuously self-configuring, self-organizing, infrastructure-less network during combat missions.


When disaster or special events happened, emergency people enter into a big area such as remote mountins, desert or dense jungles where GSM LTE coverage is 0 and no any fixed infrastructure. Using tactical MANET radio can rapidly build up a Mobile Ad Hoc Network for long range and clear voice and data direct communication between different action groups in coalition operation.

3.What advantages does the radio need to have fpr meet the military requirement?

  • Rapidly build up a long range, safe and reliable voice communication network without any infrastructure

Ad-hoc network can be created anywhere with movable base stations. All the connection is wireless. It does not need any infrastructure such as GSM network, IP Network, Power supply, etc. 

  • Push-to-start, Rapid deployment, Self-powered

When disaster or special events happened, the communication radios must begin work immediately to build up a stable network for real time voice communiatio. All the radios are self-powered by big capacity battery and the batteries are also quickly replaceable.

  • The communication system is completed

The system includes hardware for communication and software for real time monitoring.

  • Bettery Covarege

In mountains, desert or dense jungles, the communicaton range are required very big. The MANET radios supports extending network range by adding radio devices. And the radio devices quantity is not limited.

  • A variety of Terminals

Tactical MANET Radio is available in compact, handheld, vehicular and base station form-factors, single- or dual-channel radios, different configurations and features the radios provide mobility and scalability across one network for government, military, first-responders, emergency and commercial users.
