Powering smart military systems and intelligent unmanned platforms

Today’s technology-driven government and defense initiatives demand in-the-moment intelligence.

By leveraging FreeWave’s military-grade wireless solutions – now infused with edge computing capabilities – you can take immediate advantage of real-time data insights to keep pace with the rapidly-changing realities of missions and mission-critical operations.

Push Intelligence to Where Training, Operations, and Missions Take Place

As a long-time leader providing combat-proven wireless solutions for government and defense, millions of FreeWave’s products are integrated into systems and devices used to improve situational awareness and security, enable robust command and control, and automate mission-critical operations. Our ultra-reliable embeddable radios provide a Cost, Size, Weight, and Power (CSWaP) advantage with their small, lightweight form factor, industry-leading low power consumption, and low-cost integration.


Now, we’ve infused our ruggedized solutions with IQ intelligence, which adds compute power to enable real-time decision making at the edge or device level, and provides a seamlessly extensible platform for increasingly autonomous operations. With FreeWave, government and defense organizations can take full advantage of the IIoT efficiencies already transforming other industrial markets, pushing data processing to where the action is occurring and ensuring there is no delay between insights and action.
