The radio, which is made in a new palm-sized form factor, has the same technological advantages as other products of the BNET line, SDR-scalability, multi-channel reception, advantage in the frequency spectrum.

According to the Israeli company BNET NANO, it provides innovative capabilities on the battlefield based on the technologies developed by Rafael – multi-channel reception [MCR]unprecedented network bandwidth in terms of data transfer rate and multi-user, minimal latency and support for “apartment” networks with hundreds of subscribers.

BNET cognitively manages limited spectrum resources, providing seamless communication to large military formations with minimal planning and efficient use of the entire spectrum of radio frequencies. BNET radios confidently provide communications in areas where GPS signals are suppressed, a typical scenario on today’s battlefield. BNET devices can detect and avoid spectrum interference and operate as low intercept or detect devices [so-called LPI / LPD devices] in a dense environment.

Commenting on the event, Jofa Wermuth, Vice President of Rafael and Head of C3I, said: “The BNET NANO radio is a significant step forward for fighters and combat platforms, which is significant and will have a powerful effect. Raphael’s patented BNET MCR solution is integrated into a small form factor that allows you to work with multiple groups of voice, streaming and video – all in one device. MCR technology breaks the single-channel radio paradigm and allows you to receive dozens of channels simultaneously.”

For his part, Amichai Dekel, Rafael’s business development director at C3I, added: “Our solution is embodied in a box the size of a soldier’s palm. This is an innovative solution that will help solve many tactical programs that previously had bandwidth limitations. Finally, it allows bandwidth to be increased and hundreds of fighters and units to be connected without burdening the soldier with multiple data transmission systems that provide information exchange.

According to the representatives of the company, Rafael BNET is a lightweight radio receiver capable of providing point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communication topology, as well as a special network that will provide constant communication to the entire personnel of the brigade in the area of ​​operation.
