FreeWave MM2-M131.3 GHz radio

FreeWave Technologies, manufacturer of the most reliable, high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission, today announced it is exhibiting at ITEC, a London-based conference focused on defense, simulation, training and education, May 22-24, 2012. At ITEC, FreeWave will display a full portfolio of its wireless data radio offerings that are used for a variety of government and defense applications, such as soldier training and range data systems applications; command and control of unmanned vehicles and robotics; biological and chemical sensing; asset tracking; Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Micro UAV; guided parachutes; and, more.

“This is our first time exhibiting at ITEC and FreeWave is excited to bring its government and defense solutions to a new audience,” said Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer at FreeWave Technologies. “By exhibiting, we have a great opportunity to connect with organizations across the globe that can benefit from our reliable and versatile communication solutions. We especially are excited to demonstrate how our products are ideal for soldier training applications.”

At ITEC, FreeWave will demonstrate how its wireless radios are being used by the U.S. Department of Defense and other government organizations for multiple major training programs and ranges. Currently, FreeWave’s MM2 and F Series radios are deployed during soldier training exercises to transmit performance data for After Action Review (AAR). During training exercises, soldiers 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 situations.

Attendees are encouraged to stop by FreeWave’s ITEC booth (#B144) for an introduction to the company and to learn about its latest government and defense technology offerings. FreeWave also will showcase a diverse collection of its popular ruggedized data radios in its booth including:

The MM2 Family, which includes the MM2-MU (340 MHz-400 MHz), MM2 (900 MHz) and MM2-M13 (1.3 GHz). These radios feature a tiny footprint and lightweight form factor making them ideal for mission critical applications where space and weight are at a premium.

GXM (2.4 GHz), a serial radio that offers the same form factor as the MM2 radio.

3400 Series (3.4 GHz), Q Series (228-235 MHz) and F Series (225 MHz-400 MHz), which are designed for defense and international use.

FGR2 (900 MHz) serial radio.

FGR2-PE (900 MHz) radio with two Ethernet and two serial ports.

HTplus (900 MHz) high-speed Ethernet radio.

“Many attendees at ITEC will be looking for the latest defense, training and simulation solutions available today that will streamline operations and ensure sensitive data can be securely transported,” said Sharma. “Our booth visitors will have the opportunity not only to learn about our offerings in these markets, but gain an understanding as to why FreeWave’s radios are the most reliable within the industry and are trusted around the world to transmit critical data.”
