IMT Receives $450,000 Order for Airborne Video Downlink System (AVDS) from South Atlantic State Investigation Bureau

Integrated System Provides Airborne Tactical Insights to Ground Operations in Support of
State Law Enforcement Investigations and Surveillance Missions

MOUNT OLIVE, NJ, DECEMBER 8, 2016 – xG Technology, Inc. (“xG”) (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW) business unit Integrated Microwave Technologies (“IMT”), a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the law enforcement, broadcast, sports and entertainment markets, announced it has received a $450,000 order from a state investigation bureau located in the South Atlantic region (“the Bureau”) for the IMT Airborne Video Downlink System (“AVDS”). The system consists of an integrated suite of downlink transmitters, receivers and antennas that will be used to capture and transmit real-time, reliable high-definition video from fixed-wing aircraft for display at command centers, mobile receivers and on video management systems.

The Bureau recently acquired a new fixed-wing aircraft and determined that the IMT AVDS would be perfect to enhance its capabilities for carrying out law enforcement investigations and surveillance missions. The AVDS is known for its ability to deliver clear and stable video from extended ranges and aerial platforms.

Products featured in the AVDS include:

  • Skymaster TX — a lightweight, full-featured video downlink transmitters installed with
    Access RC controllers in the aircraft;
  • Multiple CIRAS-x6 antenna systems installed in strategic locations;
  • CIRAS and Stream Viewers on command vehicles;
  • VNS-1000, IP video distribution server.

“This order solidifies IMT’s leadership as the premier choice of law enforcement agencies for supplying real-time, reliable, high-definition video capture and distribution solutions,” says John Payne IV, president of IMT. “Maintaining situational awareness is a critical aspect of law enforcement operations and the AVDS was designed to support ground personnel by providing an enhanced perspective on events from the air as they occur. We look forward to working with this new client to ensure they obtain the key tactical insights they require for their missions.”
