High speed laser transmits data at high rate
As the battlefield becomes more data-driven, ensuring warfighters are equipped with the information they need, whenever and wherever they need it, is critical to mission success.
Keeping this agenda in mind, Exelis and its partner Innovative Technology Solutions Inc have successfully completed an extensive series of evaluations of the jointly developed Tactical Line-of-Sight Optical Network (TALON) free-space optical communications system.
Conducted in collaboration with the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), the exercises demonstrated the ruggedized system’s capability to wirelessly transmit 100 megabits per second of high-resolution imagery and video over a distance of more than 50 kilometers (31 miles).
During the course of the testing, the ruggedized system demonstrated its broadband capability to transmit and receive streaming audio and video simultaneously from stationary and mobile positions in high-wind environments.
