SEE HOW THEY WORK TOGETHER
Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCBB: MKRS), Princeton, New Jersey, May 25, 2007–Mikros Systems Corporation announced today that it has been awarded additional funding on SBIR Topic “A Study of Commercial Wireless LAN Interference Issues Aboard U.S. Navy Carriers” (CVNs). The contract is a follow-on to Mikros’ SBIR Phase I work performed under Radar Wireless Spectral Efficiency (RWSE).
The additional funding of $150,000 was awarded to Mikros from Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) San Diego, bringing the total amount of the SBIR Phase II contract to $750,000. During the contract option period, Mikros and team partner Mobilisa Inc. plan to continue development of the Interference-aware Wireless Network Design tool (IWIND), a software package which allows the Navy to plan and optimize deployment of shipboard WiFi networks. IWIND automatically places shipboard Access Points to optimize coverage based on user-specified wireless requirements. It also analyzes potential interference between network equipment and onboard RF systems such as radars, and where possible, mitigates interference using smart placement and channel selection algorithms. IWIND will be used by the Navy to plan network deployments on aircraft carriers (CVNs) and other platforms.
