LightSpeed™ R23

r23

Ship-to-Ship / Ship-to-Shore Non-RF Communications,
Data and Distance Device

The eye-safe IR LED allows non-visible communications between units at distances up to 2.5km. Provides full-duplex voice communication, functions as a network link to a remote computing device or to another system via USB network connection and measures distances between LightSpeed devices with very high accuracy to provide distance, velocity and acceleration.

  • Developed for NAVY Operational Logistics Integration (OPLOG) Program
  • Replaces legacy Phone and Distance Line (PDL) system during
  • Underway Replenishment (UNREP) with LightSpeed™ technology
  • Non-RF covert communication during approach
  • Units use eye-safe IR LEDs
  • System demonstrated distance measurement and voice communications between ships operating at various speeds
  • System demonstrated distance measurement and voice
  • communications between RHIBs operating at various speeds
  • System capable of passing any information (including tactical) in any
  • format (open source) from ship (any size) to shore to mobile
  • Advantages of the PDL replacement: Reduce Manpower, Increase Accuracy, Increase Safety, Enhance Capabilities
  • Perfect performance even in fog at distances 5-6 times the visibility limit
  • Non-visible communications between units at distances up to 3.2km
