Hardware Engineering

Low Size Weight and Power (SWaP) Hardware Design: – Our personnel have years of experience creating specialized hardware products intended for use in environments were every Joule counts. This experience has proven applicable in products designed for air, ground, sea, and space-based theaters.

Electronic Warfare (EW) – PLEX creates products relevant to all principles of Electronic Warfare including Electronic Attack (EA), Electronic Defense (ED), and Electronic Surveillance (ES). The ability to incorporate these capabilities into devices with small SWaP is a core competency of our engineers.

Radio Frequency (RF) Engineering – The engineers at PLEX design RF solutions that operate from DC up to the Extremely High Frequency (EHF) portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Customers that need systems that require low Noise Figures (NF) for enhanced receiver sensitivity or transmit power outputs in excess of 30 dBm come to PLEX regularly for custom RF solutions.

Digital Communications Solutions – PLEX personnel are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in the realm of digital communication solutions and waveform development. This includes the design, development, integration and productization of such solutions.

Radio Design – PLEX creates radio solutions that meet our customer’s needs. This includes adapting existing Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) radios or creating fully custom solutions. In most cases, PLEX finds it appropriate to leverage Software Defined Radio (SDR) architecture design concepts but is capable of deviating from that when appropriate.
