SARASOTA, Fla., April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or "the Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW) announced that is has received an initial order to supply xMax software-defined cognitive radio (SDCR) networking equipment to the U.S. Army's Intelligence Electronic Warfare Test Directorate (IEWTD). The order, received under a sole-source solicitation, consists of an xMax software defined cognitive radio (SDCR) system and associated hardware and software that will serve as a mobile tactical communications infrastructure.
xG will meet the government's expedited delivery requirement and deliver all equipment within 30 days.
xG Technology was selected for its unique ability to provide a robust expeditionary communications capability that is highly resistant to electronic attack, suitable for augmentation of integration into currently-fielded tactical military communications systems, following sponsored participation in several DoD electronic warfare exercises. Additional testing and technology evaluations determined that xG Technology was the sole vendor having an immediately deliverable implementation of SDCR technology. xMax is increasingly recognized as a leading technology which greatly improves command and control communications in challenging communications environments, giving it high value as an anti-electronic warfare asset.
This represents the second order received from the U.S. military by xG Technology for an xMax tactical wireless broadband system. On October 26, 2015, xG announced that it received an order from a Department of Defense agency for xMax equipment and services.
George Schmitt, CEO and Board Chairman of xG Technology, said, "This order is further evidence of the need for xG's industry-leading interference mitigation technologies in mission-essential communications. The U.S. Army has recognized the value of xMax as interference-resistant tactical broadband communications with an unprecedented combination of robustness, interoperability and insulation from the effects of contested and congested spectrum."
Among the salient xMax characteristics that were noted as key aspects of the decision to purchase from xG Technology were the following:
- Support for voice and data communications;
- Highly reliable in congested spectrum environments;
- Frequency agile and spectrum sensing;
- Seamless integration of commercial end-user devices (mobile phones, tablets, IP devices); and
- Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) and advanced interference mitigation algorithms
The xMax systems will be deployed under the auspices of IEWTD at the U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground (USAEPG) at Fort Huachuca, AZ. USAEPG is the premier organization of the Army for testing command, communications, control, computer, and intelligence systems and equipment.
