U.S. Customs and Border Protection Selects Silvus MANET Radios to Enhance Interoperability and Shared Situational Awareness

Silvus Technologies has announced that the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has awarded Silvus a 4-year, $9.9 million IDIQ contract for StreamCaster MANET radios and MN-MIMO waveform technology. As part of the contract award, Silvus has received an initial $1.75 million task order to support CBP’s southern border sectors. Silvus StreamCaster MANET radios and MN-MIMO waveform were selected for their ability to create a robust, secure, and resilient mesh network, connecting key border technology systems, sensors, aircraft, and front-line personnel.

Silvus advanced StreamCaster MANET radios provide high-fidelity video, voice, and data communications – delivering broadband wireless connectivity for mission-critical applications. In addition, its flexible software defined radio architecture will enable CBP to seamlessly add enhanced capabilities to address evolving operational requirements. At the heart of every StreamCaster MANET radio is Silvus’ proprietary MN-MIMO waveform technology that creates a self-forming, self-healing, and adaptive mesh network – capable of linking hundreds of Smart static and mobile technology nodes and sensors with unmatched range, data rate throughput, resiliency, and scalability.

“This latest award exemplifies Silvus’ successful partnership with the CBP, and our commitment to delivering innovative connectivity solutions that advance the Innovation Team’s mission,” said Greg Dunbar, Silvus Director of Sales, Public Safety & Commercial. “Our advanced StreamCaster tactical MANET radios and MN-MIMO waveform will support Smart integrated networks with a powerful toolset of capabilities that increase operational mission success, tighten national security and improve the connectivity of front-line personnel
