Dual-Band Wave Relay® MANET

The GVR5 provides simultaneous, dual-band, robust, low latency, and high-capacity networked communications among tracked and wheeled ground vehicles, and among ground vehicles and Wave Relay® MANET-equipped aircraft.


Use the Wave Relay® MANET’s massively scalable network, with Cloud Relay™ and intelligent Radio-over-IP (RoIP), to rapidly task-organize vehicles, munitions, dismounts, and airborne assets. The GVR5 interoperates with the Wave Relay® MANET family of tactical networking devices.

  • Simultaneous Dual Band Wave Relay® MANET (Mobile Ad-Hoc Network)

  • Automatically routes communications over the best band depending on geography and RF congestion

  • Embedded Cloud Relay™ federates the GVR5 with 3rd

  • Party Communications Systems, such as LTE and Wide Band SATCOM

  • Automatically discovers & routes communications to tactical voice networks, such as SINCGARS, TACSAT, and HF

  • Massive Network Scalability & Robust IP networking supports Rapid Task Organization, Joint Operations, & Mobile Command & Control

  • Tracked and Wheeled Vehicle Ready

  • Ideal for manned-unmanned vehicle teaming and vehicle leader-follower operations
