Rajant announces the Cardinal module integrated into the UVify OMEGA Drone platform

Visit Rajant with UVify at Xponential booth 1734

Malvern, Pennsylvania – May 9, 2023: Rajant Corporation, the pioneer of Kinetic Mesh® wireless, will announce the integration of its latest dual-radio credit card-sized Cardinal module with UVify’s OMEGA drone platform at Xponential May 8-11 in Denver, Colorado . The Cardinal is powerful, lightweight, and notably the smallest dual-radio platform within Rajant’s portfolio of industrial wireless nodes.

Designed with UAVs in mind, Cardinal supports applications such as drone swarms for military applications, track verification systems for railway maintenance, inventory management for smart warehouses, industrial security and mapping for large corporate sites and drone light shows. InstaMesh is based on Layer 2 meshing, which minimizes latency for making real-time changes in light shows. Dual radios enable communication between drones to extend drone shows into the thousands.

According to Robert Cheek, COO of UVify, Rajant’s strategic partner, “The latest release from Rajant, the Cardinal, will transform the way organizations think about drone swarms, including military, commercial and light show applications. The lightweight, low-latency dual-radio Cardinal allows for the expansion of these drone applications far beyond current performance levels.

According to Rajant Corporation’s vice president of systems, Don Gilbreath, “Rajant Kinetic Mesh BreadCrumb radio nodes, coupled to UVify platforms, have previously been flown in large drone swarm formations under the Offensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics (OFFSET) program of DARPA. They have also been employed to self-test the integrity of railway tracks using video for predictive maintenance and to support light shows for Chris Martin and Coldplay. The more than 100 unmanned aerial systems (UAS) have demonstrated highly distributed computing and distributed communications for various swarm research programs and markets. The new UVify OMEGA can be ordered with the integrated Rajant Cardinal, which is our latest and smallest. The Cardinal module has a footprint the size of a credit card and two radios. There’s a magnesium heat sink and RF shield to help keep weight to a minimum.

Those visiting UVify next week will experience product demonstrations, including an interactive immersive proof-of-concept. Schedule a time to meet at the show or stop by the booth to see the latest Rajant/UVify products.
