Silvus announces new Phase II SBIR contract from Air Force Research Laboratory

Under this 2 year contract Silvus Technologies' will build a digital beamforming antenna array for airborne and ground applications.

Los Angeles, Calif., July 18th 2013 - Silvus Technologies Inc. a leading developer of mesh networked Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) radio products for tactical and commercial applications has been awarded an SBIR Phase II contract to design and build a digital beamforming antenna array for airborne applications. This contract award is a result of a successful Phase I feasibility study that Silvus Technologies conducted under SBIR topic # AF131-038. The total dollar amount of the award including Phase I and Phase II is $900K.


Under this 2 year contract Silvus Technologies' will build a digital beamforming antenna array for airborne and ground applications. The final deliverable of the program is to demonstrate electronic tracking of multiple simultaneous transmit and receive beams to and from airborne assets. The ability to adaptively null out interferers will also be demonstrated. This program lays the foundation for a low SWaP-C directional antenna technology that can be mounted on small unmanned aerial vehicles.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
