WHITELEY, England, 30 March 2012. The Cobham plc Tactical Communications and Surveillance segment in Whiteley, England, is introducing a new generation of Internet Protocol (IP) Mesh radios for military, law-enforcement, and commercial applications such as unmanned vehicles that need a self-healing mesh communications network combined with non-line of sight characteristics.

The Cobham IP Mesh radio nodes link together to transmit video, audio, and Global Positioning System (GPS) signals back to a central point. The mesh readjusts itself as nodes move, with no loss of bandwidth or performance, Cobham officials say. The latest IP Mesh radios are the company's third generation, and mini mesh products are available.

The latest Duo IP Mesh radios from Cobham offer point-to-point IP radio with fixed bandwidth for unmanned vehicle applications and IP Mesh radio networks as large as 12 nodes using bandwidth as fast as five megabytes per second in mobile or rapid deployment applications, company officials say.

The latest Cobham IP Mesh radio s offer encryption and security options, fixed-bandwidth options, and single-frequency camera control. For more information contact Cobham Tactical Communications and Surveillance online at www.cobham.com.
