Bridge the gap from here to there

Kinesis Interoperability

In the same way that Kinesis is agnostic to unmanned systems architectures or platform vendors - Kinesis is also agnostic to the communications datalink(s) connecting things together. Datalinks come in a wide variety of communications technologies and yet few are practical for unmanned systems applications. Read on for some curated solutions that are excellent choices depending on the payload capacity (size, weight, and power) of the unmanned system you have in mind.

Kinesis works with practically all modern datalinks but our own MxC family of datalinks is a great choice for nano/microscale systems. Have more payload and/or require a more robust link? Take a look at the Persistent Systems MPU5 datalink below which is our preferred option for tactical mesh networks.

MxC family

Tomahawk Robotics has integrated Kinesis with the leading nano and micro class unmanned systems, from both the commercial and defense markets, to create a suite of personal ISR datalink solutions that can be easily tailored to the mission at hand. Pick your unmanned platform and strap the corresponding MxC datalink to your kit to create a fully integrated ISR system that is interoperable with TAK/ATAK and the broader Kinesis ecosystem.

MxC supports both commercial platforms and UAS from the US DOD's Blue sUAS program. In all cases, the MxC family has the same “ins” and “outs” integrated into the same physical package – meaning determining which UAS is appropriate for the mission has never been easier.

Persistent Systems

Built to create powerful, secure networks anywhere, the MPU5 unites all your critical data sources in real time giving you and your team the confidence to make difficult decisions in the heat of the moment.

The MPU5 is Tomahawk Robotics' preferred tactical Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) datalink of choice. Data, video, voice, and a fully integrated Android computer system makes the MPU5 the world’s first "smart radio" that is also uniquely able to run Kinesis onboard when paired with Persistent Systems' RDC.
