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.
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.
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.
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.
