Thales announced it has completed the first full-scale demonstration of its SALAMANDRE (Système Avancé pour Liaisons HF Adaptatives Multi-bANDes Rapides et Efficientes) new wideband HF radio technology
The demonstration was completed on 15 December 2016. An HF radio link was established between Cormeilles-en-Vexin and Toulon and provided two-way communications in real-life conditions over a distance of 730 km with no pre-existing infrastructure. Awarded to Thales in December 2013 by the French armament procurement agency, the Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA), the advanced study contract for SALAMANDRE.
SALAMANDRE offers adaptive, spectrum-efficient multi-band high-speed HF communications. The new technology offers 8 times more bandwidth than current HF systems and guarantees high-quality connectivity.
The technology paves the way for the provision of new user services (voice, mail, chat, image transmission) and significantly improves resistance to interference.
