KairosAutonomi Receives Contract for Unmanned Ground Vehicles Operation by NAVAIR

Rajant announced that they would be providing the kinetic mesh technology as section of a contract offered to KairosAutonomi from the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Maryland, for the Navy Moving Land Target Program.

BreadCrumb LX3

KairosAutonomi designs and manufactures equipments for unmanned ground vehicles and offers the Pronto4 system, which is a robotic applique kit that helps vehicles to drive themselves through a previously specified GPS path or via remote control. The Navy is planning to use these systems on the pick-up trucks to use them as unmanned moving targets that can be fired on by navy pilots during training sessions.

Rajant would be supplying LX3 wireless transmitter-receivers, called as 60 BreadCrumb which would be used in monitoring and transmitting control instructions to these vehicles and for video transmission to control stations from the vehicles. A total of 18 relay and ground control stations would be providing communication across the region where the MLT vehicles would be operating. The co-founder and CEO of Rajant, Robert Schena, explained that both fixed and portable Bread Crumb nodes are used in mining and military applications for providing mobility, flexibility and ruggedness. He claimed that the BreadCrumbs form Rajant would suit these types of applications as the nodes on the BreadCrumbs communicate with each other to enable dynamic adjustment of frequency changes and adapting to the prevalent physical conditions and availability of network. The BreadCrumb LX3 from Rajant is a rugged multi-radio wireless transceiver which forms a mesh network with other BreadCrumb devices. Each node in the mesh consists of two radios and supports connectivity via Ethernet or 802.11a/b/g client equipment. It is compatible with numerous off-the-shelf devices such as, PDA, IP cameras, laptops, VoIP and other IP gear.

With the help of the advanced InstaMesh protocol from Rajant, the BreadCrumbs are able to establish continuous and instantaneous routing or wired and wireless connections. The military operations where the kinetic mesh technology is particularly useful are instant high-bandwidth net, UAV applications, man-portable and PAN, convoy communications, perimeter security, surveillance etc.
