Mobile Networked MIMO (MN-MIMO) is a state-of-the-art waveform that solves many of the problems that face today’s wireless systems.
MN-MIMO was developed in our labs as a result of over 15 years of advancements and $60M in U.S. government-funded R&D and commercial IRAD in the areas of MIMO and Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET). Leveraging emerging innovations from the communications research community, Silvus MN-MIMO technology provides reliable, high bandwidth, meshed video and data communications in the world’s most challenging conditions.
This breakthrough waveform is a powerful blend of Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (COFDM), Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna techniques and Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) to deliver digital communications with unparalleled performance and flexibility.
COFDM breaks a broadband channel into many discrete, narrow sub-channels or subcarriers to provide increased robustness.
Multiple antennas combined with digital signal processing further enhances wireless link performance.
Every radio acts as a transmitter, receiver and repeater to enable multi-hop peer-to-peer communications between a multitude of users.
The following 3-minute animated video provides an excellent overview of how MN-MIMO technology works and how it can benefit your mission.
