TrellisWare TW-850-01 TSM Ghost

Small Form Factor Radio

TrellisWare TW-850-Ghost Military Tactical MANET RadioTW-850-01 TSM Ghost is an affordable, compact, and fully operational radio that provides real-time, continuous Position Location Information (PLI). TSM Ghost is part of TrellisWare’s next generation of products, designed to track personnel and assets, and to provide situational awareness, especially against friendly-fire.

TSM Ghost easily connects to tablets or laptops via a Micro USB, effectively monitors ground operations, and it mounts onto robotic or unmanned systems (UAVs). Each TSM Ghost in the network aggregates all position locations from other radios in the network, and provides GPS location updates every 2-3 seconds. TSM Ghost supports low visibility operations with a built-in battery and concealed buttons for basic operation. It is a small size (3x5” x 2.4” x 0.8”) and weighs only 6.4 oz.

TSM Ghost is powered with TrellisWare’s robust and infrastructure-less TSM™ and operates with any TSM tactical radio. It acts as a relay for voice, data, video, and PLI traffic for all radios on the network, extending the range and reliability of the network.
