IMT Vislink's $900,000 Contract from the U.S. Air Force will Supply Airborne Video Downlink, Transmit and Receive Systems

A contract for $900,000 has been awarded to xG Technology, Inc. (“xG” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), whose IMT Vislink brands are recognized as providers of live video communications to supply airborne video downlink solutions (AVDS) for use by the U.S. Air Force.

The contract calls for the supply of transmit and receive systems, ground-based units designed to display real-time video imagery taken by aerial assets, related component and accessories, and training services.

This is a follow-on order to one previously announced on May 23, 2018, and similar to an order IMT Vislink received from the U.S. Army that was announced on November 20, 2017.

John Payne, President and COO of IMT Vislink stated that IMT Vislink remains a trusted partner to their armed forces, owing it to their reliable, high-performance, rapidly deployable video communications systems. Their ability to provide solutions that meet stringent requirements and can support the most demanding applications and deployment scenarios, underscores their leadership in customizable, mission-critical video technology.
