Convoy movement through hostile territory is extremely unpredictable and having full situation awareness among all vehicles in the convoy is extremely important.
Our tactical communication mMESH™ products can be used in a convoy movement to enhance situation awareness across the whole convoy. When a mMESH™ network is established, all vehicles in the convoy will be connected in an IP network. Video, data and voice can be communicated between any vehicles in the convoy.
In the convoy, each vehicle can have a mMESH™ node and camera(s) installed, and vehicle commanders with ruggedized laptops will be able to view the videos of any cameras in the convoy. Such a deployment will enhance the situation awareness and increase the survivability of soldiers in hostile environments. If the convoy includes a helicopter, the helicopter can also have a mMESH™ node installed and it can function as a relay point between the convoy vehicles, and extend the range of coverage. If one of the convoy vehicles is equipped with a satellite VSAT comm-on-the-move antenna, the entire convoy can be linked to Central Command and information can be sent to and fro between Command and the convoy.
Taking the Convoy Movement scenario one step further, mMESH™ can be deployed as a Battlefield Communication Network; mMESH™ can link up all friendly units in the battlefield, and with GPS data Commanders will be able to know where all assets are deployed and located, providing Commanders an overview of assets status and deployment. Such a network deployment will provide Commanders with greater situation awareness and improve communication and coordination of friendly forces. Up-to-date information and intelligence can also be pushed to the units in the battlefield.
Soldiers and special forces units can be equipped with our Robust Bodyworn mMESH™ or PTT mMESH™ units. This will enable human assets to be connected into the battlefield network.
Military Field Camp Security
Military camp surveillance and protection is critical in any field operation. Surveillance cameras connected to the mMESH™ network, can create a perimeter surveillance around the base camp. All the video feeds will be transmitted to a central monitoring station. Various types of sensors can also be added to the solution, where the cameras will only be “woken up” when the sensors sends a trigger to the cameras. Once triggered, the camera will wake up and start transmitting video over the mMESH™ network to the monitoring station.
Military Drone Applications
Drones are widely deployed in military for surveillance operations. Various types of cameras and mMESH™ core modules have been integrated onto various aerial drone platforms by different drone manufacturers for surveillance applications. Whether to observe enemy movements from afar, or conducting a search and rescue operation, drones equipped with mMESH™ and cameras can provide small team deployment with eye-in-the-sky capability.
Aerial drones equipped with mMESH™ can also function as a relay point to enable transmission of video/audio/data over longer distances. The higher the relay point, the further the coverage will be.
