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.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series: High Precision Stages with Built-in Controllers and Linear Encoders

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
