Mobilicom Ltd (ASX:MOB) has entered into a partnership with the designer and manufacturer of RF/microwave amplifiers and integrated radio systems, Triad RF Systems, to create enhanced distribution opportunities and exposure to the unmanned/autonomous systems markets.
The partnership will initially provide an integrated product line featuring Mobilicom’s multi-function radios (MCU product family) coupled with Triad’s high-power radio solutions and create a new product line for sale and distribution by both companies.
There is “significant upside” to the partnership as it provides further channel opportunities within the US market in the military and industrial segments for the enhanced products.
Triad VP of business development Patrick Sherlock said: “Pairing Mobilicom’s very capable and secure radios with our smart amplifier technology is a natural coupling.
“Mobilicom’s vast high powered radio user base can take advantage of the additional amplification provided by Triad to achieve longer range links and higher data rates at distance.”
Expanded market opportunity
Mobilicom chief executive officer Oren Elkayam added: “Working with Triad to provide integrated products will improve the distance and data range of our products.
“Additionally, it will provide an expanded market opportunity with further exposure to the rapidly growing unmanned and autonomous systems markets, a key strategic objective for Mobilicom.
“We see significant upside for this partnership as it enhances our existing product and provides further channel opportunities within the US market in the military and industrial segments.”
The product line will include Mobilicom’s secure Mobile MESH technology and its ICE Cybersecurity Suite with Triad’s smart RF amplifiers to provide the most cost-effective and efficient fully integrated amplified MIMO (multi-input and multi-output) radios, on the market, for MESH network communications.
Targeted at suppliers and manufacturers in the rapidly expanding unmanned/autonomous systems market, the product line has clear applications within military and industrial UxV drone and robotic segments.
It will provide end-users with enhanced levels of security and performance.
Both companies will share the implementation and integration costs associated with the product development with associated revenue to be dependent on customer orders.
