CambridgeConsultants-250Cambridge Consultants, a leading technology product design and development firm, today announced the signing of a strategic partnership with Nujira to assist its customers in deploying Nujira’s compelling modulator technology in the defence and security sectors. The partnership will see Cambridge Consultants use its experience in the defence sector, along with its extensive expertise in wireless technology, to help customers in this market design-in and develop products using Nujira’s high efficiency Envelope Tracking modulator technology for a variety of military applications.

High efficiency power amplifiers based on Nujira’s Envelope Tracking technology have many potential applications in the defence sector, particularly for battlefield communications. This technology is especially relevant as the sector focuses on reducing the power requirements, and therefore the size and weight, of new handheld manpack and small form factor radios and other transmission systems. Moreover, there is an increasing a need to improve the heat dissipation in vehicle-based applications. By significantly reducing the power requirements, Nujira’s technology will be able to increase the operational range of current systems, or significantly reduce their weight through the use of fewer batteries.

Nujira’s proven technology has become well established in the commercial sector for cellular network infrastructure and digital broadcasting, enabling a 50% reduction in basestation or transmitter power consumption. As the defence sector looks to exploit more cutting edge technology, Cambridge Consultants will be working with Nujira’s defence customers to create lower power devices and solutions incorporating the novel modulator technology.

“Nujira’s technology is at the leading edge of the commercial market, but making the adjustments for defence deployments are at an early stage,” commented Richard Traherne, head of wireless at Cambridge Consultants. “However, by bringing our expertise and experience in dealing specifically with security and defence customers, we can help these sectors benefit from new and extremely compelling software defined radio technology, such as Nujira’s Envelope Tracking.”

Cambridge Consultants has grown into one of the largest independent wireless development teams in the world. The company’s track record in the sector has encompassed work with a broad range of customers, from governments and agencies to global commercial organisations.

Tim Haynes, CEO of Nujira, said, “We see huge potential for our technology in the defence sector. Although the transmission environments in this market are especially challenging, we can enable a major efficiency improvement for defence communications systems. The partnership with Cambridge Consultants is going to be crucial for developing our business in this sector. Their expertise and experience will help us significantly accelerate our growth in this market.”

Cambridge Consultants will be discussing this announcement, as well as demonstrating some of its latest wireless technology developments at Mobile World Congress, 14 -17 February (Stand 1E68, Hall 1).
