FlexRadio partners with BAE Systems for AHFRM contract award
On March 30, Austin, TX-based FlexRadio Systems announced that it will collaborate with BAE Systems on a multiyear contract for the U.S. Air Force to provide high frequency (HF) software defined radios for its Airborne High Frequency Radio Modernization (AHFRM) program.
The new HF radio will deliver beyond line-of-sight, long distance, assured communications for aircrews in an increasingly complex and congested threat environment.
“The combination of FlexRadio’s unique software defined radio IP and HF expertise with BAE Systems’ breadth of knowledge and experience in advanced C4ISR solutions helped rapidly deliver a hardened solution that supports strategic and tactical missions,” said Stephen Hicks, chief technology officer and vice president of engineering for FlexRadio Systems.
“Worldwide high frequency communication is what our commercial customers do every day using virtually every mode of operation and type of propagation,” said Matt Youngblood, chief executive officer of FlexRadio. “FlexRadio’s contribution to the AHFRM program will help to ensure future capabilities for warfighters for years to come.”
