January 21, 2013 — Gallatin, Missouri based WideBand Corporation has announced that it has been selected by the US Army for a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Contract. This continues work started in 2010 when the Army awarded WideBand a Phase I contract. Phase II projects typically run two-years and are valued at up to $730,000 dollars.
“We are excited to continue working with the Army on this project,” said WideBand Chairman and Chief Scientist, Dr. Roger Billings. “It is an honor to support our US military and to be involved in cutting-edge development.”
The goal of the project is to research and develop key technology areas that will reduce latency in a multi-node communication architecture and lead to a modular and reusable communications architecture for the hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) test environments. The technology is expected to also be applicable to reduce the latency in multi-node communication systems. Potential commercial applications include high performance cluster computing environments such as digital content distribution, digital video surveillance with processing such as facial recognition, signal processing, and scientific research.
The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) a subordinate laboratory to the Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) funded WideBand Corporation on the modular, rapid, common HWIL framework development technology.
