Get hands-on with Tactical Networking Technology. Operate a Remote Weapons Station and control Spot from Boston Dynamics at the Persistent booth.
Persistent Systems (“Persistent”), a leader in mobile ad hoc (MANET) technology, announced today that the company will be exhibiting its networking and communications solutions at the SHOT Show, held at The Venetian Convention & Expo Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada, on January 23-26, 2024.
“There has been tremendous interest from Military, Law Enforcement, and the Civilian Outdoor user community in Wave Relay® networking technology,” said Brian McDonald, Senior VP of Field Technical Services & Support. “At Shot Show we are offering an immersive experience, where attendees can put on the kit and operate the technology.”
Geared up, attendees will then experience Wave Relay® across several tactical activities at the booth.
The first stop is the Sentry portable unmanned weapons system from Onyx Industries. Attendees can take control of the remote weapons station over the network from the Rugged Display and Controller (RDC) on their kit and view the live feed from its optics.
From there, attendees can launch the Boston Dynamics app on their RDC and take control of Spot – the robotic quadruped. Use the robot’s arm to open a door and pick up a suspected IED.
“Everyone wants to drive Spot! But by the end of the experience users will realize the power of a fully networked operational environment. Every unmanned system and remotely operated weapon is accessible to ALL of the end-users. It’s a total game changer,” Brian McDonald added.
Persistent will also be raffling off items to booth attendees every day throughout the show. Prizes include a Forward Observations Group X Wolf Forty Designs SEAF Jr. knife, a Stroup Bravo 5 knife, a Spiritus Systems Fanny SACK Pouch Mk3, and a Spiritus Systems plate carrier.
“There will be a lot of activities for attendees to experience at the booth. Control weapons stations, drive unmanned vehicles, control cameras. I don’t want to reveal it all here, you’ll need to stop by,” added Brian McDonald.
