SARASOTA, Fla., June 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a developer of wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, announced that it successfully demonstrated its interference mitigation capabilities against sustained electronic attacks (jamming) at the U.S. Special Operations Command's ("USSOCOM") Technical Experimentation Event 15-3 conducted June 14-18 at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center ("MUTC") in Indiana.
During a three day exercise, a tactical xMax network was deployed to provide real-time video, position location and integrated tactical radio communications from vehicles operating in diverse terrain throughout the MUTC. Sustained electronic attacks from military-grade jammers were introduced but were unable to disrupt the performance of the xMax network.
xG was selected to participate as a technology developer at the event because of the unique capabilities that the xMax cognitive software-defined radio platform brings to tactical and expeditionary operations. xMax was the only communication system on display at the event that met the USSOCOM requirement for innovative and advanced software-defined radio technologies that will enable secure and interference-resistant communications for Special Operations Forces ("SOF").
USSOCOM provides command, control and training for all Special Operations Forces in the U.S. It conducts Technical Experimentation events throughout the U.S. with participation from government, academia, and private industry. The events provide a unique opportunity for technology developers to interact with the Special Operations Forces community in a collaborative environment.
Brian Lasagna, Vice President of Business Development at xG Technology, said, "This represented an excellent opportunity to display how the advanced interference mitigation capabilities of the xMax system meet current USSOCOM requirements. We had significant engagement at the event with USSOCOM program planners and officials, and we look forward to working closely with them to tailor xMax form factor, frequency support and other features to suit specific SOF missions. Our success at this event reflects the increasing interest in the ability of our technology to assure high-capacity, high-availability wireless services, regardless of external conditions."
