Electronics and systems for military and civilian applications
Our main areas of excellence include infrastructural, tactical, wired and wireless TLC Systems; very high-frequency (VHF) / ultra high-frequency (UHF) radio systems up to 3GHz for short-range communications, specific solutions up to 38GHz; telephone systems and resources management system, based on voiceover IP (VoIP) and radio-over IP (RoIP) classified networks, wired and wireless campus and wide-area networks, TETRA networks; integrated system for interoperability such as wired / radio gateway.
We are experts in electronic warfare (interception systems, direction finding, signal analysis, communication jamming systems counter RC-IED, Counter UAV systems, RF Spectrum monitoring, EMC / EMI analysis) and in systems integration and co-existence of jamming with communications (band filters, time synchronisation and special antennas with space diversity).
We also specialise in critical infrastructure protection from CBRN threats through tactical labs, both in the field or on vehicle or naval platforms, in local area control systems handling heterogeneous sensors, explosive detection systems, in mobile and fixed-video surveillance systems.
Moreover, we focus on situation awareness such as real-time indoor and outdoor localisation systems for personnel and equipment, blue force tracking, and tactical video transmission systems.
