- The RAID System, is being developed by Tomahawk Robotics for the U.S. Department of Defense as a fully integrated communications and common control solution for uncrewed systems on land and air, and is designed to be used by soldiers to communicate with drones and robotics
- Mobilicom’s cybersecure communications systems is to be embedded into the RAID System developed for human-machine teaming on the battlefield
Shoham, Israel, Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobilicom Limited (Mobilicom or the Company, NASDAQ: MOB, MOBBW; ASX: MOB), a provider of cybersecurity and robust solutions for drones and robotics, today announced that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) has selected its SkyHopper cybersecure, bi-directional software defined radio (SDR) for integration into the RAID System. The DOD has contracted Tomahawk Robotics, a leading robotics manufacturer for the defense industry, to design and build the RAID System, part of Tomahawk’s Kinesis Ecosystem, that delivers AI-enhanced common control, open architecture, and advanced cybersecure communications networking.
RAID will enable universal drone and robotic control of legacy systems as well as next-generation uncrewed systems, sensors, and payloads for dismounted soldiers. AI-enabled universal robotic command and control technologies provide infantry units with significant improvements in situational awareness, mission success, and lethality to meet the challenges of tomorrow's battlefield. A complete wearable solution and mission kit built into a sleek, submersible chassis similar to a rugged backpack, RAID is designed to be part of the next generation of wearable systems for ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) to be used by soldiers who communicate with uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Tomahawk placed a purchase order for SkyHopper Pro for the initial production of RAID Systems to supply to the U.S. DOD.
