FlexRadio Systems and BAE Systems will collaborate to provide High Frequency (HF) software defined radios to the U.S. Air Force under a new multi-year contract as part of its Airborne High Frequency Radio Modernization (AHFRM) program.
The new HF radio will deliver beyond line-of-sight, long distance, assured communications for aircrews in an increasingly complex and congested threat environment.
“The combination of FlexRadio’s unique software defined radio IP and HF expertise with BAE Systems’ breadth of knowledge and experience in advanced Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions helped rapidly deliver a hardened solution that supports strategic and tactical missions,” stated Stephen Hicks, chief technology officer and vice president of engineering for FlexRadio Systems.
“Worldwide high frequency communication is what our commercial customers do every day using virtually every mode of operation and type of propagation,” said Matt Youngblood, chief executive officer of FlexRadio. “FlexRadio’s contribution to the AHFRM program will help to ensure future capabilities for warfighters for years to come.”
