Persistent Systems Successfully Demonstrates Flat 320-Radio MPU5 Network

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Mobile ad hoc networking solution delivers reliable comms, situational awareness, under rough conditions.

NEW YORK, N.Y. Persistent Systems, LLC (“Persistent”) announced today that it successfully demonstrated that its MPU5 smart radio could scale up to an unprecedented 320-node mobile ad hoc network (MANET) at a military operation urban training facility, at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

The MPU5 runs the Wave Relay® MANET routing protocol, allowing the radio to transmit and relay secure voice, video, text, and sensor data in a robust, peer-to-peer fashion—all without external communications infrastructure. It’s a capability that the U.S. Army has been looking for with its Brigade Combat Teams.

“The Army wants a MANET that can scale up to 250 mobile radios in a flat, layer-2 network,” said Herbert Rubens, founder and CEO of Persistent Systems. “However, such a network would exceed the capability of most other solutions currently available.”

By contrast, Persistent’s Wave Relay® was designed to achieve extremely high levels of scalability without any limitation on the number of nodes or routing hops permitted in the network. And the Fort Bragg demonstration—in which, 320 MPU5 radios, spread across 37 multi-story buildings including basement levels, communicated successfully on a single RF channel—proved this capability.

“Let’s be clear: A flat MANET network of this size has never been demonstrated by any other organization,” Rubens said. “We not only proved that it is possible to scale up to a 320-node, flat, layer-2 network, but that it works, and it works well.”

During the demonstration, the MPU5:

• Tethered with Samsung Galaxy S7 phones, reported their GPS locations, to provide situational awareness in both ATAK and WinTAK;

• Connected a video camera on a Polaris DAGOR lightweight tactical vehicle, streamed more than 2 Mbps of multicast video over the network; and

• Used its Radio over IP (RoIP) capability to tether multiple legacy land mobile radios into the network, allowing dismounts to speak on Tactical Satellite while carrying only an MPU5 and the Persistent Dual PTT Device.

The load on the network was representative of an extremely large team running voice, video, and situational awareness. Yet despite the load on the network, the MANET still had additional capacity to spare.

“Persistent has a reputation for advancing the state-of-the-art in scalable MANET technology,” Rubens said. “And we have proven that the MPU5 can deliver a tactical MANET network that scales beyond the Army’s requirements.”

Arc’teryx LEAF Assault LT Uniform Featuring Gore Katana Fabric

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Arc’teryx LEAF Assault LT Uniform Featuring Gore Katana Fabric

Although we’ve mentioned the Assault LT ensemble by Arc’teryx LEAF a couple of times in the past, many don’t know that it is made with a fabric developed specifically for he military market by WL Gore & Associates, called Katana.

Katana incorporates ePTFE ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) fiber technology and is lightweight, breathable, fast drying and no melt/no drip making it great for use in hot environments. Essentially, the inclusion of ePTFE in the standard 50/50 NYCO, improves the blend. Arc’teryx further tuned the uniform with 520E Tweave and Cyberknit mesh.

The advantages of Katana are many:
-Low wet pick-up for faster dry time
-Faster dry time with moisture absorption
-High mechanical durability (break & tear strength)
-High strength to weight ratio (weight reduction)
-Low coefficient of friction offers low, wet cling and improved hand
-Tunable with other fiber blends inherent characteristics, like FR

Assault Shirt LT

-PPE compatible allowing the shirt to be functionally worn with body armour
-Low profile zip neck allowing collar to be worn either open or as a neck protector

-Mesh pocket bag liners (upper arm pocketing) allowing for enhanced ventilation and reducing overall apparel weight when the shirt is wet

Assault Pant LT

-Enhanced belt loops allowing for the use of the LEAF Rigger’s system
-Retention loops (sewn into waistline) allowing for the tying off of personal items
-Reinforced knees & gusseted crotch allowing for increased durability and enhancing end-user mobility
-Hand pockets (w/internal folding knife pocket) allowing for the secure carriage of a standard folding knife

H&K – USC 45

Monday, April 30th, 2018

It’s Back! The USC is derived from the .45 ACP HK UMP submachine gun. But remember, it’s imported from Germany specifically for the civilian market, so some of the features we associate with H&K’s military and LE weapons, are missing.


The “featureless” skeletonized buttstock incorporates the pistol grip as well as a rubber cheek rest and recoil pad, for those of you in areas where you need to avoid scary features. However, the USC also features attachment points on the top and sides of the receiver along with handguard for optional Picatinny rails. It also features a ambidextrous safety/selector lever and oversized trigger guard for easy operation while wearing gloves and a 16” cold-hammer forged target barrel.


Unfortunately, it comes with just two 10 round magazines, but still cool, nonetheless. If this goes like the SP5K released two years ago, you’ll want to pick one up on this first release, because there may not be a second shipment.
