Vislink Receives Microwave Communications Equipment Order worth $200,000 by African Police Force

xG Technology’s Vislink business has received orders valued at approximately $200,000 for specialized microwave communications equipment. The new equipment will be used in airborne surveillance and law enforcement operations by a police force in Africa. The orders are the first for Vislink for deployment by this end-user customer, and follow-on orders are expected to be received.

The Vislink equipment covered by these orders will be used in an airborne video downlink application. It was specifically chosen because its ruggedized design and ability to withstand the rigors of in-flight operations surpassed the capabilities of existing alternatives. Vislink delivered equipment customized to the specific mechanical requirements and flight characteristics of the end user customer's aircraft.

This order is the latest in a number of contracts received by xG Technology's IMT and Vislink units for airborne downlink systems and related components from local, state and national police and security organizations in the US, the UK and around the world.  With solutions designed for airborne, maritime, unmanned, plus ground vehicle and fixed site applications, IMT and Vislink combine the latest in microwave, satellite and cellular communication technologies to provide surveillance operators and senior officers with increased situational awareness, even in the most challenging conditions.
