FOXAX-LS: What's in the box?
FORAX-LS has been fielded with U.S. and international customers since January and more systems just shipped to a new customer overseas. This early activity has us working to catch up with demand, because we intend to stock the popular, inexpensive FORAX-LS system for immediate delivery.

Nonetheless, Steve Gemeny has been able to pry free a couple of systems for field demonstrations. Call and ask about seeing FORAX-LS in action for yourself.

The FORAX-LS system can be procured both directly from the factory or via one of our domestic or international distributors (see here). FORAX-LS will  be available soon on a GSA schedule and the U.S. government can purchase on a sole-source basis if desired, as the product evolved from Syntonics' participation in DoD's SBIR program.

Call or email Steve Gemeny to place your order via your most convenient route.

Successful TACSAT-via-INMARSAT Testing
In February, one of our DoD customers came to Syntonics to test the performance of an interesting INMARSAT product, L-TAC, when used with Syntonics' FORAX-LS system.

L-TAC enables tactical radios to use UHF MILSATCOM beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) communications via the INMARSAT system. In their words, "Designed with U.S. military users in mind, Inmarsat's global L-TAC service complements the scarce UHF satellite capacity with a single-hop, low-latency voice and data service, providing additional reliable capacity when UHF channels are inaccessible. Available on a global, seamless basis, L-TAC enables existing in-service tactical radios to access BLOS without the need to modify the radio hardware or the cryptos."

FORAX-LS is Syntonics' newest RF-over-Fiber offering. Using FORAX-LS to connect the tactical radio to L-TAC means that the radio can stay with the user, secure and convenient in the command post, while the INMARSAT equipment is far away, connected by one strand of single mode optical fiber.

Testing demonstrated that FORAX-LS was completely transparent to the communications performance of the PRC-117F radios and the INMARSAT equipment. Both encrypted voice and data were communicated at the exact same voice quality and Bit Error Rates, respectively, with and without FORAX-LS.

Contact the Factory for more details or for a point of contact at INMARSAT for find out more about this interesting capability.

We like DoD's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program!

The U.S. Special Operations Command's SBIR program has published a number of Success Story Quad Charts, including Syntonics' Handheld Tactical Antennas. USSOCOM is profiling technologies that have been developed through their SBIR program and that reflect both transition stories and successful technology pursuits.

USSOCOM encourages you to take a few moments to view their past successes; we especially like ours.

Successful ISO Re-certification
Syntonics' commitment to quality continues
Since 2003, Syntonics has maintained a Quality Management System (QMS) registered to ISO 9001. We are audited every year by BSI Americas, part of the British Standard Institute.

This April's successful recertification audit achieved another three-year extension to our ISO registration. Greg Walther, who leads our day-to-day ISO activities and conducts our internal audits, worked with the BSI auditor as he interviewed a broad swath of the company, quizzing their understanding of our QMS and examining the quality records they generate and maintain.

The entire company is proud that our consistent, persistent commitment to quality resulted in another successful result. So, you ask, what is Syntonics' quality policy?

Syntonics LLC is diligent in its commitment to excellence, meeting or exceeding 
customer requirements, and continually improving effectiveness. It is by the combined efforts of every Syntonics employee that this commitment is fulfilled.
