FreeWave Technologies to Exhibit and Showcase Latest Wireless Data Radios for Government and Defense Applications at I/ITSEC

First time exhibitors will feature latest industrial radios for soldier training applications at the World's largest modeling, simulation and training conference

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 28, 2011 -- I/ITSEC, (Booth #2914) - FreeWave Technologies, manufacturer of the most reliable, high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission, today announced it will exhibit for the first time at I/ITSEC ( and showcase its latest industrial grade wireless data radios for government and defense markets. FreeWave radios are used in these industries for a variety of applications, such as command and control of unmanned vehicles and robotics, biological and chemical sensing, asset tracking, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Micro UAV, guided parachutes, soldier training and range data systems applications, and more.

"FreeWave is dedicated to serving its customers in the government and defense markets," said Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer at FreeWave Technologies. "Our customers choose our technologies based on their enduring performance, small footprint and lightweight format - making them ideal for mission critical and life or death applications where proven reliability is a necessity."

At I/ITSEC, FreeWave will feature its popular radios which are currently used by the Department of Defense and other government organizations for several major training programs and ranges. The MM2, F Series and P Series radios are deployed during soldier training exercises to transmit performance data for after action review (AAR). Soldiers will wear the radios for GPS positioning and to register speed, hit data and other diagnostics for player units, targets and effects. Upon evaluation of the data, a soldier's performance can be modified to better prepare for combat.

FreeWave's MM2 radios offer all of the same features of its standard-sized radios but in a much smaller package. It weighs in at 14 grams with a size of 1.4-inches high by 2.0 inches wide. The MM2's tiny features, long-range ability, reliability and security make it ideal for the government and defense market. The F Series operates in the 225 MHz-400 MHz frequency band and the P Series is available in 1.35 GHz-1.39 GHz. Both are designed to meet the rigorous demands of users worldwide in the most adverse environments.
FreeWave also will demonstrate a diverse collection of its popular ruggedized data radios in its booth at I/ITSEC (#2914). The entire Micro Mini family will be featured, including the MM2-MU (340 MHz-400 MHz), MM2 (900 MHz), GXM (2.4 GHz) and MM2-M13 (1.3 GHz).

Additionally, FreeWave will display its F-Series (225 MHz-400 MHz) in enclosed and board level product variants. Attendees are encouraged to stop by FreeWave's booth for an introduction to the company and to learn about its latest technology offerings.
"The applications our radios are used for directly align with the interest of attendees at I/ITSEC," said Sharma. " We hope our booth visitors will walk away from this event understanding the FreeWave difference, which is a combination of unmatched reliability, noise immunity, customer service and cost savings."

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
