Company’s MPU5 device to demonstrate networked communications, edge computing and AI capabilities

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Persistent Systems, LLC (“Persistent”), a leader in mobile ad hoc network (MANET) solutions, announced today that it has been awarded a $950,000,000 ceiling indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capability across platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software and algorithm development in order to enable Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).

This contract is part of a multiple award multi-level security effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us to potentially support multiple categories in the networked, open systems approach for JADC2,” said Adrien Robenhymer, Persistent’s Vice President of Business Development for U.S. Air Force, Intelligence and Department of Energy.

Persistent brings its MPU5 networking device and Wave Relay® MANET solution; the collaboration it has had with various industry (sensor, unmanned ground vehicle, and unmanned aircraft system) partners; and its experience with programs which provide robust communications, cloud networking and situational awareness to Air Force strategic convoys.

“Our Android™-loaded MPU5 networking device enables such capabilities as edge computing and artificial intelligence (AI) and distributed computing for sensors, which are extremely relevant to this massive, multi-natured contract,” said Robenhymer.
