At AUSA 2019 in Washington, DC, this week, Commtact will launch the HiveComm datalink family, a suite of solutions that enables advanced communications for a variety of air, sea and land platforms. The suite includes advanced technology incorporated into OEM products, tactical ruggedised units and ground end stations.
Ariel Kandel, Commtact CEO, describes the new product family as “a new generation of SDR [software-defined radio] wireless advanced datalink solutions providing secured IP connectivity and high-end performance in ever-changing operational environments, combined with leading proprietary and combat-proven technologies […] We are continuously engaged in the development of solutions that enable our customers to enjoy flexible, open architecture, secured, robust communications solutions under the most challenging conditions, ensuring continuous high data rate transmission between platforms or users.”
HiveComm is a leading SDR system designed to provide full duplex digital communications, enabling high-performance data transmission (40Mbps). The suite combines multiple-Input, multiple-output (MiMo) technology for improved reliability and performance in a multipath environment, as well as unique algorithms for encryption and secure communications. Advanced error correction techniques and algorithms increase datalink robustness and reliability in even the most challenging scenarios.
Among its many features, HiveComm has an adaptive modem, the AiMoTM, delivering a one-of-a-kind smart modem algorithm ‒ optimising the SDR for maximum performance. The modem operates either single or multi-carrier modulation, providing the operator with the required operational flexibility.
Networking is accomplished by Commtact’s proprietary mobile ad hoc network (MANET) solution, HiveNet, a highly effective self-forming/self-healing, ad-hoc, multi-hop Mesh network. Using the company’s AMADEUS real-time HD video encoder, enhanced video capabilities offer real-time multi-transmission from several different payloads at low latency. Two built-in proprietary HD video encoders allow concurrent encoding, decoding and transmission of multiple HD video streams.
