Wideband Networking Radio (WNR)

Thales Wideband Networking Radio - WNR

  • Handheld, portable, networked communications unit
  • Scalable, tactical MANET communications
  • For the most challenging RF environments


The Thales Wideband Networking Radio (WNR), powered by the TrellisWare TopX-II waveform, is a handheld, portable, networked communications unit. It is designed to provide robust voice and data communication in the most challenging RF environments. This unique tactical Mobile Ad-Hoc Networking (MANET) product enables rapid deployment of high throughput networks across the harshest conditions.

The Thales WNR PHY and MAC layers have been designed to support simultaneous voice, IP data, and position location information (PLI) in extremely harsh environments.

The waveform uses the latest coding techniques paired with an innovative networking approach to achieve a scalable MANET design.

Advanced MANET features such as automatic self forming/self healing networks and voice prompts mean operators do not have to spend time configuring or setting network parameters in the field. Operation is intuitive and transparent to the operator, making training fast and simple.

Key Features:

  • Simultaneous Voice, IP data and PLI @ 2 Mbps
  • Supports Standard IP Applications
  • Self Forming, Self Healing Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET)
  • Net Entry Time < 1 second
  • Scalable Low Latency Networking up to Hundreds of Users
  • Auto Routing Transparent to Operator
  • Connect via Ethernet, USB or Bluetooth (BT)
  • MIL-STD-810F, 2 Meter Immersion
  • Standard AN/PRC-148 MBITR Form Factor
