Abstract
The 60 GHz frequency band possesses the potential for secure, low-power, and high-data rate communication links. Current implementations of V-band wireless links are severely impaired by challenges such as shadowing. MaXentric's 60 GHz ViFi system is an effective method that overcomes the major challenges of deploying reliable 60 GHz networks. ViFi's flexible architecture permits utilization of an ultra-wide bandwidth to achieve tens of gigabits in data throughput. ViFi incorporates advanced Integrated Circuit technology that allows a highly compact implementation that offers compatibility with individually-worn simulation training devices. Both the protocol and physical nature of the ViFi system permits individual security levels. A Phase II realization of ViFi will enable an untethered immersive training environment that promises to enhance the Air Force's preparedness for future conflicts.
