Paper Abstract

L-3 Nova's mNet family of miniature networked transceivers provides high data rate (500 kbps) networked connectivity. The mNet provides coverage from 300 MHz to 2.48 GHz, covering frequencies ideally suited for ground propagation. mNet offers low power sleep modes and full software control of data rates, modulation settings and RF power levels. The on-board LNA and PA can be enabled to increase range or disabled to conserve power. The mNet utilizes ad-hoc mesh networking to form a collaborative sensor network for distributed processing. L-3 Nova offers a variety of mNet implementation options; some units are no larger than a coin.
