Azure Summit Technology has received a second delivery order to provide software-definable, radio frequency (RF) transceivers to the US Navy.

The order is a part of the company’s five-year, $48.5 million IDIQ contract with the navy to support the AN/ZLQ-1 V2 common chassis for the maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft, persistent maritime UAS and submarine sensor systems programmes.  

Through this $5 million delivery order, the navy is procuring four, five and eight-channel RF transceivers and 16x12 fully non-blocking RF switch matrices for systems deployed on submarines, manned aircraft and UAS in support of US Navy missions worldwide.  

Thomas Green, Jr, CEO, Azure Summit Technology, said: ‘Azure's switchblade transceivers provide modular, open-architecture, cutting-edge RF performance with substantial reductions in cost and SWAP compared with alternative approaches.  This delivery order further illustrates the increasing importance of switchblade-based solutions in enabling critical mission capabilities for a growing list of US Navy platforms.’
