Research Institution
The AhlTek/Cubic Long Reach Drop-in Hotspot (LRDH) concept will revolutionize the manor in which Expanded Maritime Intercept Operations (EMIO) are conducted. With the LRDH enterprise solution, data and voice communications will be conveyed via a mobile airborne wireless mesh network that will allow for rapid dissemination of information to and from warfighters and commanders. LRDH will not only be compatible with existing shipboard networks but will also extend the reach of the Tactical Edge Network (TEN) overall enhancing the Global Information Grid (GIG). By capitalizing on the available commercial products the AhlTek/Cubic team will be able to leverage and enhance these technologies and provide a system that will be able to grow and evolve with the EMIO mission. The LRDH program will utilize small UAVs to allow the system to be utilized by any size warfighter team. With the ability of every team member to have access to a wireless network, the team’s efficiency and safety will increase. The AhlTek/Cubic team consists of subject matter experts from all aspects of the project.
