MagiQ Technologies, which specializes in optical processing innovation for defense, telecommunications and energy exploration, has successfully completed milestone in-shore testing of its Agile Interference Mitigation System, MagiQ AIMS.
Originally developed and tested in labs, MagiQ AIMS was shown effective in its first shore-based field test by US Naval personnel. Government managed Shore Based Test Facilities or SBTF’s are used to demonstrate capability in an environment replicating a tactical system, verify performance against real world conditions and prove compatibility with existing equipment.
Under development for more than 10 years, 2019 marked the first time that MagiQ AIMS was tested and successfully demonstrated performance in a tactical shipboard communications environment.
To maintain Assured Command and Control (C2) and Persistent Navigation and Timing (PNT) effective radio communications are critical to conducting successful defense operations in all domains. Effective defense operations depend on clear, uninterrupted wireless communications to enable safety, situational awareness, and successful execution of military objectives. But wireless communications can be critically comprised due to the presence of numerous competing devices and antennae, reducing effectiveness and endangering personnel.
The MagiQ Agile Interference Mitigation System (AIMS) provides advanced, real-time interference cancelation in dense electromagnetic and often hostile environments where little to no communications were possible before. MagiQ AIMS is deigned to bring communication “back-to-life” in dense electromagnetic environments where communication is limited due to friendly or even hostile radio jamming. MagiQ AIMS employs a real-time proprietary interference cancellation technique that can solve a wide range of scenarios. These include scenarios where it’s impossible to gain prior knowledge of Interfering signals, or situations where high-powered interfering signals are close in frequency to the signal-of-interest.
