Compact, Portable Military Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch

One of the most exciting advancement in technology over the last decade has been unmanned vehicles including:

  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or Drones

  • Land autonomous vehicles (UGVs) • Robots

  • Other unmanned support vehicles

These vehicles must be agile, compact and highly intelligent. In order to support this sophisticated intelligence, these platforms may have to carry and connect a variety of Ethernet-based devices including computers, sensors, and targeting systems – all in compact platforms that must operate in extreme environmental conditions. The MILTECH918 is an ideal Ethernet switching solution for these rugged environments. With the best combination of size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) in the industry, it saves valuable real estate and payload.
