Lockheed Martin selects Accipiter Systems to help develop advanced network


Accipiter Systems has been chosen by Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Senors - Akron to help develop and demonstrate a prototype network that combines the throughput capacity of free space optical communications with the reliability of radio frequency communications to support the needs of the warfighter.  The network is being developed for the Advanced Technology Office of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), Arlington, Virginia through the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.


The new network technology will be developed and tested on DARPA's Optical and Radio frequency Combined Link Experiment (ORCLE) program.  New hardware and software systems are being developed on the program that will combine the strengths of the dual technologies while reducing the effects of the weaknesses of each.  A range test of new communications system is called for in approximately 18 months and the option for a flight test in 30 months.


Accipiter Systems specializes in the development of next generation data communications systems for custom military and commercial applications.
