Enhanced Data Link (EDL) Nano

Small Unmanned Vehicle Software Defined Radio 

Secure, Resilient, IP Video, Data, and Voice Wireless Networks for Unmanned Vehicle, Dismount, and Vehicle Networking

The EDL-Nano Data Link is a conduction cooled small software defined radio (SDR) designed to provide onthe-move (OTM) seamless connectivity for IP data, video, and voice. Low latency, seamless Layer 2 Ethernet connectivity facilitates plug-andplay, creation of networks of computer tablets, cameras, sensors. The capability for direct USB device support is provided via industry standard USB connections and software driver support. Aeronix end-to-end SDR technology enables unprecedented Cyber security and network encryption capabilities not available in non-SDR radio solutions. Models are available for RF spectrum in the L and S bands. Custom RF bands between 100 MHz -6 GHz are available for customer specific applications. Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, and peer-topeer MESH network topologies are supported.
