Doodle Labs has announced its strategic partnership with UKRSPECSYSTEMS, a prominent manufacturer of state-of-the-art unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This collaboration is geared towards tackling the significant challenges drone manufacturers face in supplying UAS to the Ukrainian defense forces and enhancing the operational capabilities of the MINI SHARK UAV.

The Ukrainian defense forces have encountered substantial obstacles when utilizing UAVs, including persistent threats from Russian jamming techniques and the complexities of challenging terrains and unpredictable environmental conditions.

In response to the imperative for resilient and robust communication systems in UAV operations, UKRSPECSYSTEMS has seamlessly integrated Doodle Labs’ battle-tested Helix Mesh Rider Radio into the MINI SHARK UAV. This onboard datalink solution is purposefully designed to overcome the Ukrainian defense forces’ specific challenges.

The Helix Mesh Rider Radio, developed by Doodle Labs, harnesses patented multi-band wireless technology to facilitate secure and dependable communication, effectively countering jamming attempts. Its advanced mesh networking capabilities ensure uninterrupted connectivity, even in challenging and unpredictable environments. By harnessing the cutting-edge capabilities of the Helix Mesh Rider Radio, the MINI SHARK UAV experiences an augmented situational awareness, extended operational range, and exceptional resistance to adversarial interferences.

Field operators in Ukraine have reported their successful transmission of HD video over distances of up to 80 kilometers while effectively evading active Russian jamming attempts. This achievement is made possible by utilizing the six available frequency bands within the multi-band Mesh Rider Radio.

“We are thrilled to partner with UKRSPECSYSTEMS in revolutionizing the UAV industry by equipping the MINI SHARK UAV with our Helix Mesh Rider Radio,” said Ashish Parikh, VP Business Development for Doodle Labs. “By combining our expertise in wireless communication with UKRSPECSYSTEMS’ exceptional UAV capabilities, we can provide the Ukraine defense forces with a superior solution that addresses the unique challenges they face.”

The MINI SHARK UAV, developed by UKRSPECSYSTEMS, has gained global recognition for its exceptional performance, versatility and reliability. With the integration of Doodle Labs’ Helix Mesh Rider Radio, it sets a new standard in the field of unmanned aerial systems, empowering the Ukraine defense forces to overcome obstacles and achieve mission success in even the most hostile environments. 

“We are delighted to integrate Doodle Labs’ Helix Mesh Rider Radio into our Mini Shark UAV,” UKRSPECSYSTEMS leaders said in a statement. “The partnership with Doodle Labs allows us to offer a cutting-edge solution to our valued customers, ensuring they have access to advanced technology that surpasses the challenges faced in UAS operations.”
