Accipiter Systems Granted Funding from eBizITPA for Advanced IT Development Assistance


The Center for eBusiness and Advanced IT (eBizITPA) has awarded advanced IT development assistance funding to Accipiter Systems, Inc., in order to help further Accipiter's data communications systems product development plan.


Accipiter Systems, Inc. is developing Wi-Hy, a next generation wireless system that will eliminate network dropouts and provide a more reliable network for the military, emergency crews, surveillance and public safety personnel.  The military, which widely uses robots to protect war fighters, will use the Wi-Hy wireless connection to safely and reliably perform surveillance of bunkers, tunnels, caves and buildings.  The new system will decrease the threat of network dropout while increasing the diversity of scenarios in which robots can be used.  Additional plans are in place to develop the technology for commercial markets, ultimately resulting in more jobs within Pa.


eBizITPA, headquartered in Erie, Pa., is a statewide Ben Franklin Technology Development Authority Initiative, designed to help Pa. enterprises understand and use information technology and e-business tools.  More information about eBizITPA can be found online atwww.ebizitpa.org
