VadaTech has acquired Radio Frequency Simulation Systems Inc. (RFSS) and that company’s expertise in digital RF memory (DRFM) technology. VadaTech, a supplier of embedded circuit boards, supporting software, and integrated subsystems notably for radar systems, will continue to support and improve on the DRFM technology, which is vital to many military electronics systems, including electronic-countermeasures (ECM), identify-friend-or foe (IFF), and radar systems.

Saeed Karamooz, chief executive officer (CEO) of VadaTech, says, “The natural synergies between the product sets of RFSS and VadaTech will provide great results for customers in terms of time-to-market and functionality for their next-generation platforms. This acquisition is in line with VadaTech’s philosophy of providing customers with access to cutting-edge technology, and we look forward to creating innovative solutions together.”

Richard Damon, president and CEO at RFSS, adds, “RFSS customers will benefit from improved performance and reliability, and dramatic reductions in the size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) of their solutions thanks to integration with VadaTech’s advanced hardware modules. VadaTech’s global sales and distribution network also means more local support and capability.”

DRFM relies on advanced data converters, such as analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs), capable of maintaining high signal integrity. It is used for simulators as well as in-field systems, including radar target generators, radar environment simulators, IFF simulators, and ECM target generators. Such systems are invaluable for testing and training applications.
