The TW-400 ‘CUB’ unit is a small
profile addition to TrellisWare’s TWSeries Tactical Mobile Ad-Hoc Network
(T-MANET) family geared for lowprofile communication networks, sensor
networks and data dissemination,
fixed or mobile, applications. Carrying
TrellisWare’s latest Tactical Scalable
MANET Enhanced (TSM-E) waveform
offering unparalleled connectivity in the
harshest environments combined with a
highly scalable transparent networking
and higher data rates, CUB units
provide the same robust networking
capability of CheetahNet with sensor
network and communications flexibility.
TrellisWare’s latest TSM-E waveform combines the same robustness to multipath
and dynamics and self-forming, self-healing networking as the CheetahNet TSM
waveform with higher data rates for the sensor mission. The TSM-E waveform
is capable of maintaining connectivity even at high platform speeds and in harsh
RF environments such as downtown urban areas, in ships and in tunnels - just
like CheetahNet. The TSM-E networking layer is highly scalable from 10’s to
100’s to 1000’s of units, offering fully networked wideband IP data plus push to
talk (PTT) voice and network-level position location information (PLI) tracking
without any operator interface or fixed Infrastructure - just like CheetahNet.
The CUB unit adds several new features optimized for industrial, law enforcement,
and military networked sensor control and communications. The CUB unit can be
connected to any external 9-18V DC power source and put into power conservation
sleep modes that activate it only when needed. Each unit includes a multifunction side
connector port capable of connecting to external computer devices as well as directly to
sensors. The Mulit-Sensor dongle contains an Ethernet port, dual 2.5mm trigger sensor
inputs, and dual trigger outputs as well as a BNC connector for analog video sources.
