Silvus Technologies, Inc. has been awarded a second purchase order under an unnamed U.S. Department of Defense program to provide additional StreamCaster radios for U.S. troops.
Initially contracted to deliver 1,000 radios in May 2020, Silvus’ success in supporting rigorous integration and testing resulted in the additional order.
During trials in support of the program, Silvus’ proven performance was demonstrated as its radios were subjected to electronic warfare jamming environments, where the company’s Interference Avoidance capabilities allowed the network to support the traffic in contested spectrum environments. The StreamCaster can perform at scale and range without having to trade off anti-jam capabilities. StreamCasters exceeded all threshold requirements and met or exceeded many objective requirements for the Single Channel Data Radio program.
The StreamCaster Radios were selected due to their optimization for low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP), high scalability, high throughput, and resilient connectivity in harsh environments, providing the soldier with real time data transmission for situational awareness in dynamic, unpredictable circumstances. Silvus’ radio is also the only low SWaP radio capable of supporting a 140-node, company-scale network at 1.25 MHz bandwidth at a range greater than 1 km.
“At Silvus, we take great pride in our ability to rapidly produce cutting edge technology to meet the needs of the warfighter,” said Colonel (Ret.) Mike Kell, Silvus Director of Army Strategic Programs. “This second purchase order represents not only a significant milestone in supporting the Department of Defense with state-of-the-art data radios, but also a major step forward in realizing the military objective of providing greater capabilities towards a more lethal soldier connected into a unified network.”
