About Us:

Non Line-of-site wireless was born from 9 years of customer support calls while working at COBHAM a major OEM of COFDM wireless links. Many of my UAV (drone) and UGV (robot) customers had a strong background in mechanical, electrical manufacturing and machine programming but no experience with RF Microwave communications. I offered a list of low cost test equipment but that was soon followed by calls on how to use the equipment. I couldn’t cover the technical background and detailed procedures in a phone call or even a few white papers. In several cases I made field trips to resolve their problems and do limited training on RF test equipment and procedures.

What was needed was a detailed seminar over a few days to cover all the RF technical background issues including a full day of hands-on experience using RF test equipment. Then key UAV/UGV OEM staff and end user operators would have the expertise to verify each TX/RX module, RF cabling and antennas are working up to original OEM specifications…when installed on their platform.

See “About US” for the solutions to this and other RF link issues that I provide.
