Network technology avoids jamming of military drones

by Marco van der Hoeven

Drones equipped with frequency-hopping radios using network technology by Doodle Labs are being used by Ukrainian soldiers to evade Russian jamming attempts and to transmit HD video from up to 80 kilometers away. Russian jamming poses the biggest challenge for Ukrainian Armed Forces’ use of drones.

Doodle Labs’ Helix Mesh Rider Radio makes use of multi-band and interference-avoidance technology to help drones combat jamming attempts. In addition to military applications, Doodle Labs’ radios can be embedded in advanced robotics platforms with commercial, industrial and public safety applications, allowing people and technologies to thrive in dynamic and challenging environments.

This year, Doodle Labs has been named to Fast Company’s list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies 2024. Doodle Labs landed at No. 2 in the Robotics category. Doodle Labs’ mesh networking equipment creates networks for robotics and connected teams. Its radios are carried by teams of connected workers and embedded in industrial-grade drones, autonomous ground vehicles and advanced ground robotics in commercial, industrial, public safety and military settings, allowing these people and technologies to operate in dynamic and challenging environments.

In the past 18 months, Doodle Labs has introduced a series of innovations, including its patented multi-band technology, which allows for multiple frequency bands to be accessible using the same radio; its patented Sense feature-set, which detects RF interference like Wi-Fi noise or intentional jamming and automatically switches to a better-performing channel or band; and the Wearable, a handheld form-factor that allows teams of workers in challenging or disconnected environments to create their own powerful private, mobile ad-hoc wireless network.

Doodle Labs radios are embedded in robotics platforms in agriculture and construction industries, in high-tech security operations for US government agencies and in drones being flown by Ukraine defense forces in the battlefield in the face of Russian jamming.
