NEW YORK, N.Y. Endeavor Robotics selected Persistent Systems, LLC. to provide the company's MPU5 radio systems to be integrated with Endeavor's mid-sized unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) for use in the U.S. Army’s Man-Transportable Robotic System Increment II program.
The program has been officially awarded to Endeavor Robotics by the U.S. Army’s PEO CS&CSS program office. Persistent Systems’ MPU5 will provide secure and long-range data communication for command and control (C2), video, CBRNe [chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense], and other sensor data.
The MPU systems delivers modular frequency architecture that allows the operator change radio-frequency (RF) bands (L-,S-, and C-Band). It also provides users with 100+ Mbps, 3×3 MIMO radio with up to 6 watts of transmit power to provide a long range and secure IP network in both LOS (line-of-sight) and NLOS (non-line-of-sight) environments.
