HiMoNN provides a flexible and secure broadband communications solution that is automatically set up and immediately available between vehicles on the spot. With this - different client devices as well as sensors can communicate in real time. Additionally, HiMoNN has a GPS functionality to visualize the current position of the HiMoNN devices in a monitoring display. Transmissions to other networks and the connection to remote command and control centers are possible via mobile, satellite, directional radio or terrestrial networks. This allows for example direct access to data bases in the remote command and control center from the operation theatre, or the support by remote telemedicine experts.
HiMoNN is based on ad-hoc networking technology and thus does not require any stationary communications infrastructure. The ability of each communication node simultaneously to act as a relay increases the possible distances between senders and receivers and permits establishing a communications network over several square kilometers. This way the network can be spread to locations that are not covered by an existing stationary communications infrastructure, which is typically necessary for many out of area missions of military forces.
