Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
A new measurement option from Rohde & Schwarz for the R&S FSW high-end signal and spectrum analyzer supports realtime signal analysis for frequencies up to 50 GHz with an analysis bandwidth of 160 MHz.
Harris Corp., an international communications and information technology company, has received a $23 million order from a country in the Middle East as part of its tactical communications modernization program.
Nitronex, a leader in the design and manufacture of gallium nitride (GaN) based RF solutions for high performance applications in the defense, communications, cable TV, and industrial & scientific markets, has fully-qualified the robust NPT1015 transistor. The NPT1015 is a 28V, DC to 2.5 GHz, 50 W power transistor with 15 dB saturated gain and 65% peak drain efficiency at 2 GHz.
Tahoe RF Semiconductor is announcing a new, innovative, phased array technology called BeamDirect™, for both commercial and military applications. BeamDirect improves the bandwidth and sensitivity of phased array radio systems and enables extremely fine beam steering angle resolutions.
A wide range of amplifiers, transmitters, microwave power modules (MPMs), travelling wave tubes and high voltage power supplies will be on display by TMD Technologies at this year's IEEE International Microwave Symposium in Seattle, WA, USA.
Elektrobit (EB) has released a whitepaper on Cognitive Communication Networks that explores how cognitive radio can be utilized in military communications. The white paper discusses how cognitive radio works and how future wireless systems equipped with cognitive radio capabilities could dynamically access new frequency bands, and at the same time protect higher-priority users on the same bands from harmful interference. Cognitive radio capabilities utilized in military communications would enable mobile troops to communicate and share information even more effectively.
Harris Communications, the nation’s leader in the creation, design and installation of enhanced wireless networks, cell phone repeaters,bi directional amplifier and bi directional antenna technology, announces the launch of their latest line of products that comply with the new changes that have been implemented by the FCC with new rules for cell phone boosters, giving booster makers an absolute advantage after years of debate over the issue. The FCC has also managed to get the nation's wireless carriers to all agree to the new changes in the rules.
ViaSat has executed a contract with Boeing to build ViaSat-2, which is based on ViaSat’s next generation, Ka-Band satellite technology and architecture. ViaSat-2 is expected to be, by far, the world’s highest capacity satellite at the time of launch (scheduled for mid-2016).
Raytheon Co. has delivered two electronic attack payloads in support of the U.S. Army's Networked Electronic Warfare, Remotely Operated (NERO) system. The payloads were delivered as part of a contract awarded by the U.S. Navy NAVSEA-Crane in 2012. NERO is utilized on the Army's MQ-1C Gray Eagle UAS (Umanned Aircraft System) as an airborne electronic attack system capable of jamming enemy communications systems.
