Radio delivery to support U.S. Army IVAS programNews
May 07, 2020
LOS ANGELES, Calif. Silvus Technologies, Inc. announced that it has received a $3.9 million order from the United States Army to provide tactical Mobile Ad Hoc (MANET) radios in support of the Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) program.
The IVAS program utilizes an Augmented Reality (AR) Heads Up Display (HUD) goggle to provide soldiers with situational awareness while allowing their eyes to remain focused on the battlefield.
Critical to the success of the program is a high performance, low size, weight, and power (SWaP) tactical radio network that is designed to allow soldiers to share information wirelessly in real time and in dynamic, unpredictable circumstances.
Silvus competed with more than a dozen companies in the downselect process for the IVAS prototyping phase and was selected to deliver over 1,000 IVAS radios to support rigorous integration and testing which will culminate in a Soldier Touch Point (STP) event in mid-2020.
