Persistent Systems, LLC to Provide Network Technology for Endeavor Robotics’ $10M Order from USMC

Wave Relay® MANET developer will support Endeavor’s award by providing radio network for FirstLook® Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs)
New York, N.Y. – June 12, 2018Persistent Systems, LLC (“Persistent”), developer of the Wave Relay® mobile ad hoc network (MANET), announced that they will supply radio network technology and systems for Endeavor Robotics’ recently announced order from the U.S. Marine Corps. Under the $10 million award, Endeavor will provide the Marines with its FirstLook UGV, a five-pound, ruggedized surveillance robot supported by the Wave Relay® MANET.

Persistent will provide the secure, long-range IP connectivity between Endeavor’s UGV and its uPoint® Multi-Robot Control System, supporting command and control, video, and the transmission of other critical sensor data. The FirstLook robot is often used to clear buildings and see into deep tunnels, crawl spaces, and other complex environments where the Wave Relay® MANET uses 3×3 MIMO technology to route data around those obstacles for increased throughput and maximized network performance.

“We appreciate the opportunity to continue to work with Endeavor Robotics and support the Marine Corps by providing a reliable network connection to their UGV platforms, allowing Marines to assess and neutralize dangerous situations from a safe distance,” said Herb Rubens, CEO of Persistent Systems. Persistent has previously supported the U.S. Marine Corps with communications and situational awareness exercises using the MPU5 radio and Wave Relay® MANET.

“Superior radio communications are key to FirstLook’s mission success,” said Sean Bielat, Endeavor Robotics CEO. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Persistent as we work together to build dependable robotic systems for the Marines.”
