Research Institution
A key requirement of the  Air-Forces future communication effort is wideband communication-on-the-move (COTM) while transversing rough, off-road terrain at moderate speed.  BAE, Systems CNIR, Wayne, New Jersey the subcontractor on this effort,  demonstrated this capability recently  during COTM exercises involving the C4ISR Ku transmission subsystem operating on a HMMWV and communicating with an airborne vehicle. Ross-Hime Designs, Inc. Minneapolis  Minnesota and BAE,  Systems, is offering a complete  system with a new and improved horizon-to-horizon gimbal tracking system with revolutionary dexterity and ruggedness. BENEFIT: Commercial applications of this research and development include any mechanical pointing of sensors on any mobile platform including land, sea, and space. Robotic applications include  flexible joints for welding, water-jet cutting and laser.
