ANDRO’s next-generation, waveform agile systems pallet (WASP) “significantly” reduces the time and cost to generate “validated” digital-communications waveforms for the rapid field deployment of military-radio platforms, per a company news release.

ANDRO personnel is performing the work in its Heisenberg Lab in support of Rome Lab.

“The contract opens avenues for new advancements in true software-based waveform developments and growing the government’s software waveform ecosystem to support the warfighters’ needs, including 5G cellular commercial technologies and applications,” Drozd said. “WASP is one of the cornerstone ANDRO technologies that will advance the communications landscape of the future both for the military and civilian radio-product manufacturers.”

ANDRO provides research, engineering, and technical services to the defense and commercial industries. Established in 1994, the independently owned company focuses on research, development, and the application of advanced computer software and hardware products for spectrum exploitation; secure wireless communications for cognitive radios; multi-sensor and multi target tracking; advanced radar-data fusion; and sensor-resource management.

Besides its headquarters in Rome, ANDRO also has offices in Syracuse at the Central New York Biotech Accelerator, along with Dayton, Ohio, and anticipates opening additional offices in Rochester and Melbourne, Florida to provide local support for advancing customer-radio technologies, the company said.
