MN-MIMO technology to equip National Guard helicopters

LOS ANGELES, Calif. Silvus Technologies announced that Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is integrating Silvus systems into its solution for the U.S. Army National Guard (ARNG) Mission Equipment Package (MEP) program. Silvus will support SNC with its StreamCaster radios as part of the HAMMER MANET kit.

Under the MEP program, SNC will produce, support, and field intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems (ISR) systems, known as HAMMER MANET kits, as a subcontractor to Airbus Helicopters.

SNC will equip over 100 ARNG Lakota LUH72A helicopters with StreamCaster radios as part of the ISR kit. HAMMER provides networked connectivity for video, data, voice, and navigation for real-time situational awareness.
