Under the new $12.5m contract, xG Technology will deliver equipment that includes ruggedised, lightweight handheld receivers.

xG Technology executive chairman and CEO George Schmitt said: “We are honoured to have been chosen by the US Army to fulfil this important contract.

“It is a huge gamechanger that underscores our proven expertise in designing and delivering best-in-class wireless video communications solutions that enhance tactical insights.

“The devices have been designed to display real-time video imagery transmitted by aerial assets or frontline surveillance platforms.”

“We will work closely with the army to ensure they gain maximum effectiveness of our equipment in conducting their operations. We look forward to commencing product deliveries, and have already manufactured 50 units that are ready to ship as needed to our forces overseas.”
