GVR5 Dual-Band Wave Relay MANET

Massively Scalable & Massively Mobile

Designed in collaboration with General Dynamics Missions Systems, the GVR5 by Persistent Systems, LLC, is a dual-band mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) solution. Like other Wave Relay MANET devices from Persistent Systems, the GVR5 allows users to seamlessly share voice, video, text, sensor, and location data, all while on the move without the need for fixed infrastructure. The hardened GVR5 is specifically designed for integration into infantry fighting vehicles and similar platforms that have unique power systems, ballistic and gunfire shock requirements, and operate complex local area networks. 


The GVR5 can simultaneously operate on two frequency bands (L/S, L/C, or S/C - bands). It is an ideal solution for Automated-PACE (Primary, Alternate, Contingency, and Emergency) because it routes communications over the best available band. Additionally, the GVR5 allows dismounted users carrying MPU5 MANET devices to wirelessly connect to a vehicle's intercom system while in or near the vehicle. The GVR5 can be connected to SATCOM or LTE modems in the vehicle to extend BLOS connectivity to dismounted users – delivering global connectivity to the Wave Relay MANET.

  • Simultaneous Dual Band Wave Relay® MANET
    • WR-GVR5-SYS-01: C-Band & L-Band
    • WR-GVR5-SYS-02: C-Band & S-Band
    • WR-GVR5-SYS-03: L-Band & S-Band
  • Optimize communications range, data throughput, and penetration with the GVR5’s 3x3 MIMO antennas with vertical and horizontal polarizations.
  • Make any command and control service available, virtually, from anywhere in the network, using the GVR5’s Internet Protocol differentiated services and efficient voice and video multicast.
  • Manually or remotely enable/disable one or both RF bands for LPI/LPD or EMCON operations
  • The GVR5’s embedded Cloud Relay™, in conjunction with the massively scalable Wave Relay® MANET, makes rarely available means of communicating, such as high capacity SATCOM and LTE, available to anyone in the network.
  • The GVR5’s on-board video encoder, efficient multicast technology, and IP differentiated services will ensure video renders everywhere it’s needed, in time, and without over-loading the network.
  • The GVR5 is wheeled and tracked vehicle-ready and has optional ballistic shock mounting for the harshest combat environments.
