Through this new delivery order, in excess of $5 million, the Navy is procuring four, five, and eight-channel radio frequency (RF) transceivers and 16x12 fully non-blocking RF Switch Matrices for systems deployed on submarines, manned aircraft, and unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) in support of U.S. Navy missions worldwide.
