SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a leading provider of robust and resilient wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, announced that it has received an order from a Department of Defense agency for xMax mobile broadband wireless equipment and services. The equipment will be used for additional testing and validation of xMax as a mobile tactical data communications system in response to specific technology objectives.
The order was received following field evaluations conducted at a Technical Experimentation Event that took place June 14-18, 2015 at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Indiana. At this event, xG successfully demonstrated its interference mitigation capabilities against sustained electronic attack by military electronic warfare assets. 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 demonstration area. Sustained electronic attacks from military-grade jammers were introduced but were unable to disrupt the performance of the xMax network.
The xMax broadband wireless networking equipment covered by this order includes compact, high-performance access points, mobile hotspot modems that transparently bridge end-user devices—including commercial smart phones, tablets, and cameras, as well as military tactical radios—with the xMax network, and a mobile control switching center specifically designed for expeditionary deployment.
Brian Lasagna, Vice President of Business Development at xG Technology, said, "These tactical assets must be able to deploy and engage on short notice anywhere in the world, and they require the highly resilient mobile broadband communications and interoperability that xMax delivers. xMax has been engineered to function natively as a robust expeditionary communications system, and fully supports the DoD's vision of network-enabled mission command and control function in real time, across the globe."
