Staring Projectile Detection Radar (SPiDR) uses stealthy ultra wideband “noise” radar to detect incoming and near-miss projectiles ranging from slow RPGs to fast rifle bullets. SPiDR operates without a detectable electronic signature.
Syntonics’ Pixel-Addressable Reconfigurable Conformal Antenna (PARCA) Software-Defined Antenna™ is a conformal, reconfigurable, electronically pointed phased array antenna technology that can support SATCOM, EW, SIGINT and COMINT applications up to 44 GHz.
Syntonics’ PaWS™ passive wireless sensor technology enables valuable new measurements — such as strain, torque, temperature, corrosion, or pressure — in hostile and challenging environments including turbines, rotating or reciprocating machinery, pipelines, and reaction vessels.
The Army is using "RF-over-fiber” technology with both heritage and new radios to implement an aerial layer of aerostat-based communications in Afghanistan. Other applications of the same technology can decrease the risk of electronic detection of command posts (CP); reduce the threat to communication personnel and costly radio/crypto equipment; decrease CP set-up time; enable radio-antenna configurations that are otherwise impossible; and lower maintenance response times. The physics of relevant electro-optic components are introduced. System building blocks are introduced (e.g., lasers; detectors; optical fibers, connectors, circulators, splitters, amplifiers). System design examples are presented for specific tactical radios. The tutorial concludes with a discussion of system design issues for an aerial layer of communications relays.
