HUNTSVILLE, Ala. and DENVER, Colo. Abaco Systems announced it has partnered with AMERGINT Technologies to develop a lab-tested electronic warfare (EW) communications capability that can be quickly configured for warfighters.

Combining Abaco's ruggedized VP430 RFSoC hardware platform with AMERGINT's SOFTLINK architecture, which moves signal and data processing into software, the companies have created a technology that is designed to reduce radio frequency (RF) signal chain complexity, integration, and field timing from weeks to days.

Intended for advanced EW applications, the VP430 is designed to be a step forward in performance and density. It aims to enable the use of fewer boards and less power while delivering increased processing throughput.

SOFTLINK is designed to provide the ability to build software applications from an early prototype through to full operational capability, aiming to bring a mature software implementation ecosystem to agile development methodologies.
