Triad RF Systems has added to its THPR series of ready-to-install amplified radios. Eliminating the need to integrate standalone components to create a long-range wireless and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) radio links working in S-band, Triad has combined high power RF subsystems with a Microhard pMDDL2450 core radio that operates from 2402 – 2482 MHz. Triad model THPR1006 is an efficiently packaged, highly reliable, dual-channel MIMO, turnkey radio system that includes bi-directional amplifiers (BDAs), RF filtering, and optional real-time power measurements, link diagnostics, and innovative SoC-based monitoring and controls.
This integrated amplified radio system delivers maximum power output of 40W at ~5 Mbps on its max power setting, and 10W at ~20 Mbps on its max data rate setting. The company says unmanned system engineers can expect dependable RF link stability and up to 10X extra range distance as compared to the stock Microhard pMDDL2450.
These range-enhanced, high-powered radios can employ active power control to ensure that both the RF output power and SNR delivered to an antenna remains ultra-stable in the presence of fluctuations. This results in 1) reliability, as opposed to solutions where RF output power drifts too low or high during operation and causes unexpected link failures (often when a target data rate needs to be achieved), and 2) ease of use, as this Triad Amplified Radio link is lightweight (~ 1⁄2 kg) and is inherently easy to integrate, deploy, and maintain.
