SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle is the Navy’s electronic platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas including Engineering, Financial Management, and Program Management. NAVSEA Warfare Centers established Seaport-e to provide a web-based, e-business procurement portal, to facilitate performance-based service acquisition, leverage buying power, improve business intelligence and reduce cycle time. The SeaPort-e portal provides a standardized, efficient means of soliciting offers from amongst the diverse population of large and small businesses and their approved team members. All task orders are competitively solicited, awarded and managed using the SeaPort-e web based platform.
Overview of Aethercomm’s Capabilities
Aethercomm has a history of providing exceptional services in the Electronic Warfare (EW) and Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) arena for more than 12 years. Aethercomm has a staff with broad range of engineering and information technology experience. Disciplines represented are System Engineering, Signal Processing, High Power RF design, Analog & Digital Design, Computer Science and Sustainment.
Aethercomm has a world-class team of innovative engineers capable of developing Radio Frequency (RF) systems, subsystems and components. Sophisticated modeling and simulation capabilities allow us to rapidly develop systems that meet or exceed customer requirements. We prototype high risk elements of our designs so that we may mitigate those concerns prior to building the system. We have frequency range competency from 1 MHz to 40 GHz. We are experienced in the development of continuous wave and pulsed amplifiers with power outputs up to the kilowatt range. Our amplifiers may be designed for linear or saturated operation. We are proficient in narrow-band and broad-band designs. Device technologies routinely used are Gallium Nitride (GaN), Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), and Laterally Diffused Metal Oxide Semiconductor (LDMOS) and our foundry relationships allow us to constantly push transistor development. We are well versed in amplifier miniaturization using MIC technology. We design power RF amplifiers that operate at the limits of efficiency, linearity, power out, and survivability. We are capable of developing custom limiters, LNAs, and high-power T/R switches.
Our systems are designed to survive the most rugged environments. We are experienced with all types of environmental and electrical performance tests. We work closely with our customers in order to create a comprehensive response to their needs- even as they evolve during development. We routinely provide amplifiers and systems to support EW/ECM platforms, IFF systems, TACAN/RADAR systems, TWT replacement, JTRS systems, communications systems, as well as a variety of other applications. Our internal research and development efforts continue to provide new capabilities for our power RF amplifiers and our key component suppliers develop new applications for us routinely.
Our RF systems are designed using 3D modeling techniques and all thermal, environmental, and structural analysis is performed using sophisticated finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics. We specialize in high thermal stress environments and are capable of employing state-of-the art thermal management schemes. We design RF systems for manufacturability and testability in order to produce the most efficient amplifier possible.
