Abstract
ABSTRACT: Silvus Technologies Inc. proposes the use of its StreamCaster Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) radios as a Low-Power-Cost-Weight, Rapidly-Installable, Medium-Range, Interplane Communications Capability (LIMRICC) between US Air Force Command Control Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) wide body air crafts. For higher likelihood of transition our approach uses antennas that already exist on wide body C2ISR platforms. BENEFIT: The benefits of this program would be in developing a viable and cost effective air to air wireless networking capability. This could be utilized for the surveillance demands of the military or law enforcement, or to allow for a communication infrastructure based on airborne relaying in cases where satellite or cell phone infrastructure is destroyed.
