New collaboration will bring lower costs and deliver shorter acquisition cycle times
EATONTOWN, NJ – February 5, 2019 – Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT), the world leader in test, measurement, assurance, and analytics solutions for next-generation devices and networks, and Dualos, LLC, a leading provider of test and validation solutions, today announced a collaboration to provide communications test solutions tailored for military and aerospace communications systems. This collaboration will allow programs to lower costs and accelerate test cycles by leveraging Spirent’s commercial off-the-shelf Radio Frequency (RF) and Quality of Experience (QoE) test systems, with Dualos’ test design expertise and deep understanding of the unique needs and requirements of the military and aerospace sector.
Dualos’ designation as a minority-owned, WOSB and Hubzone-compliant small business further aids sourcing challenges for defense programs and contractors. Meanwhile, Spirent’s RF channel emulation solutions will enable communications system designers to simulate complex real-world effects - such as reflections, high-speed motion, and air-to-ground propagation - in the lab, allowing for faster deployment and cost savings.
“Acquiring commercial solutions is a priority for the U.S. Department of Defense,” said Dualos Executive Vice President, Rob Harris. “Our new partnership with Spirent’s Connected Devices business means we will now be able to provide the types of communications test solutions that can accelerate the pace of defense programs and deliver shorter acquisition cycle times and lower lifecycle costs.”
“We’ve chosen to partner with Dualos because they have unique expertise and experience in the complex environment of the military and aerospace sector. By working together and leveraging our proven, market-leading commercial technologies, Dualos’ solutions will bring new levels of speed and efficiency to the testing of tactical communications systems,” said Spirent Sr. Director of Global Channel & Alliance Sales, Mark Bateman.
Spirent and Dualos will be exhibiting at AFCEA WEST in San Diego, California, from February 13 – 15, 2019.
