Thales has unveiled its new SquadNet soldier radio.

The radio is optimized for "performance in areas where other radios may struggle — such as urban environments, woodland or undulating terrain," Thales said. "While most soldier radios provide simple point to point communications, SquadNet's automatic relay mode provides extended range as well as resilient coverage. Provided that one SquadNet is within range of another, voice communication and location data from all other radios on the network will be shared."

The radio can be recharged from any USB power source.
