This paper describes SSC Pacific’s solution, the MTRS/AEODRS Radio for Cybersecure Operation with Network Integration (MARCONI) system. MARCONI is a modular networking radio developed based on the Joint Communication Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JCAUS), which is being defined by the Joint Ground Robotics Enterprise (JGRE). The system architecture includes a Payload Host Module, which provides translations and interfaces to the other modules, a Communication Module based on frequency-shifted and amplified 802.11n wireless technology with ad hoc networking, and a Cybersecurity Module, which uses the latest technologies—including Tactical Key Management—to meet the unique requirements for unmanned systems.
