Mobile Mesh

Doodle Labs Mini OEM & Nano OEM Mesh Rider Radios

Scalable self-forming and self-healing Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) networks are resilient because the devices can dynamically find alternate routes and failover in case of route failure.

Multiple Bands and Multiband​

Doodle Labs Mini OEM & Nano OEM Mesh Rider Radios

The patented hybrid SDR technology enables a large family of multi-band and single-band radios.
Available in compatible form factors in all Unlicensed frequency bands for Commercial solutions and in our Helix configuration for Government solutions (Federal Bands).

Resilient Networks

Doodle Labs Mini OEM & Nano OEM Mesh Rider Radios

Designed to provide resilient networks, Mesh Rider® has a built-in spectrum scanner that monitors in-band interference and provides automatic band and channel switching capabilities. Advanced filtration and frequency-band shifting techniques are designed to minimize noise and block out-of-band signals.

Multi-cast Video

Doodle Labs Mini OEM & Nano OEM Mesh Rider Radios

In a point-to-multipoint configuration, Mesh Rider can stream high-quality video to multiple receiving nodes, from drones to numerous stakeholders on the ground.

Low Latency
