Transmit Beamforming in MIMO Tactical Communications Systems

From the simple radiotelegraphy experiments of Guglielmo Marconi to the sophisticated wireless systems of today, scientists have learned to harness the communications capacity of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum in phenomenal ways. As wireless communications evolve, one of the most promising advances is in transmit beamforming – when a wireless transmitter targets a specific receiving device rather than sending its signal like a broadcast antenna for any receiver to pick up.

Silvus StreamCaster Radios First to Integrate Successfully, Taking iTAK 2.0 Off the Grid

Silvus Technologies, Inc. (“Silvus”) and Syzygy Integration, LLC (“Syzygy”) today announced the first successful integration of a MANET radio with iTAK 2.0, a newly developed capability that closes a multi-year gap in the Team Awareness Kit/Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) ecosystem by providing the first TAK to be fully functional and scalable with Apple and iOS products.
