Airborne ISR

Introducing an entirely new breed of airborne ISR communication system.

Silvus Technologies takes airborne ISR communications to the next level. Confidently connect your command post, mission aircraft, HQ and every other mobile or stationary field asset. Silvus’ MN-MIMO technology creates a reliable high-throughput connection between your air and ground assets that easily outperforms legacy FM and COFDM systems. Advanced multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna techniques enable you to combine downlink video with high-speed uplink/downlink data in a single frequency bi-directional or mesh communication system. Achieve superb spectral efficiency, enhanced range and reliable performance in a variety of environments, from pure line-of-sight to extreme non-line-of-sight.

Link Analysis, Made Easy

Silvus’ link budgeting tool is a powerful and intuitive interactive calculator, used to predict MN-MIMO link performance in a variety of LOS and near-LOS environments. Forged in theoretical calculations, and refined through years of real world data analysis, this calculator provides surprisingly accurate predictions of link performance based on a number of user-defined input parameters:

  • Input – allows user to define terrain, frequency, power levels, and antenna gain, type, and elevation
  • Output
    • Throughput vs. distance – the calculator generates a throughput curve, illustrating how link capacity is expected to vary over distance
    • Distance to horizon – predicts whether visual LOS is expected at a target distance, given user-defined TX and RX antenna heights
    • Fresnel zone – estimates the diameter of the first Fresnel zone, based on user-defined frequency and target distance
    • Link performance metrics – predicts RSSI, SNR, MCS, link capacity, and duty cycle, based on user-defined target distance
