Triad RF Systems Helps SpyLite Go the Distance - RF CafeMay 2020: - East Brunswick, NJ - Triad RF Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of integrated radio systems and high performance RF/Microwave amplifiers, is positioned to assist in the deployment of Bluebird Aero Systems' SpyLite® Mini-UAS (there's a cool animated video on BAS's homepage).

Designed and manufactured by Bluebird Aero Systems, SpyLite® is a mature, advanced, combat- proven, extended performance electric Mini-UAS, optimized to provide covert, "over-the-hill" or extended range real-time visual intelligence.

SpyLite is unique in its ability to fly even in severe weather, assuring high operational availability for 3-4 hours and a communication range of over 50 km (can be extended up to 80 km). Fully autonomous, the system delivers autonomous ease of use and high reliability, providing a very versatile and stable ISR platform.

The Challenge:

In their long-range development stages, BlueBird's SpyLite team came up against a critical communications challenge: how to arm it with an amplified radio that was ultra-efficient, had good SNR and consistency over long distances, while remaining compact and lightweight.

The Solution:

Specifically, Triad received a contract from Bluebird Aero Systems, Ltd. to equip their UASs with Triad's THPR series integrated radio systems. Triad's THPRs have supported many of BlueBird's record-breaking UAS link distances by delivering the ultra-small, lightweight, range-enhanced radio links they required. These systems contain integrated SDRs that are amplified for higher output power, to support ISR link distances over 50 km with high band-width. A mix of several L- and S- band and C-band versions are now being delivered to support various missions. Learn more about our experience in our heritage and pedigree presentation.

More on Spylite:

The SpyLite system presents an ultimate solution for supporting real time video or tactical mapping on demand missions for open area as well as urban scenarios for military, peace keeping, low intensity conflict, HLS applications, law enforcement, S&R, disaster management and commercial applications.

The SpyLite system can be configured to back-packed, vehicle-mounted or HQ stationary configurations. All with Triad Amplified Radio Systems.

The SpyLite system has accumulated over 10,000 operational sorties in the service of several international customers and has been in operational use by Israeli Forces since 2006.

The SpyLite played an important operational role in operations "Protective Edge" & "Brother's Keepers" with over 700 operational sorties.

About RF Cafe

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
