NuWaves Engineering Awarded Two Contracts for Unmanned Aircraft
-- Systems Data Link Range Extension Services
Middletown, Ohio, March 25,
2013 – NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Embedded Systems solutions
provider, announced today that it has been awarded two contracts in support of Small Unmanned
Aircraft Systems (UAS) programs related to communication data link range extension.
awards, both from U.S. Department of Defense prime contractors and related to small unmanned
aircraft, include developmental work to customize NuWaves' field-proven
miniature commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) power amplifier (PA) modules. Both programs involve
adding bidirectional functionality to NuPower PA modules that will enable their use with half
duplex RF transceivers, which utilize a single RF port for transmitting and receiving data.
Additionally, NuWaves will be providing RF consulting services related to maximizing range and
throughput of its various data links to one of the customers.
"NuWaves continues to gain traction in the UAS marketplace by producing miniature,
high performance RF modules that meet UAS customers’ challenging size, weight, power, and cost
(SWaP-C) requirements," said Jeff Wells, President and CEO of NuWaves Engineering. "We're thrilled
to be working closely with UAS vendors, system integrators, and end users to help enhance the
performance of wireless communication systems in support of the Warfighter."
