Blackwave is a tactical wireless radio link for C2 (command and control) of small drones and robotic vehicles, providing robust communications and jamming resistance even in highly contested environments.
The triple-redundant system monitors RF environment and intelligently switches to a clean operational frequency to avoid interference. Built-in code-division multiple access (CDMA) capabilities allow multiple radios to operate seamlessly within the same area.
The durable drone C2 link can be operated in a number of modes:
- Spoofing Mode: spoofs devices using specific frequencies in order to disrupt hostile operations within the operational area
- Stealth Mode: operates on actively used frequencies at low gains to hide communications within ambient RF noise
- Brute Force Mode: operates at maximum power output to enable signal superiority within the operational area
Blackwave has been thoroughly tested by the US Army's Joint Vulnerability Assessment Branch (JVAB).
