xG Technology Receives Order to Supply xMax Cognitive Networking Equipment to the U.S. Military

Underscores the Unique Appeal of xMax as a Highly Resilient, Secure, Interference-Resistant Broadband System for Tactical and Expeditionary Communications

SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a leading provider of robust and resilient wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, announced that it has received an order from a Department of Defense agency for xMax mobile broadband wireless equipment and services. The equipment will be used for additional testing and validation of xMax as a mobile tactical data communications system in response to specific technology objectives.

The order was received following field evaluations conducted at a Technical Experimentation Event that took place June 14-18, 2015 at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Indiana. At this event, xG successfully demonstrated its interference mitigation capabilities against sustained electronic attack by military electronic warfare assets. During a three day exercise, a tactical xMax network was deployed to provide real-time video, position location and integrated tactical radio communications from vehicles operating in diverse terrain throughout the demonstration area. Sustained electronic attacks from military-grade jammers were introduced but were unable to disrupt the performance of the xMax network.

The xMax broadband wireless networking equipment covered by this order includes compact, high-performance access points, mobile hotspot modems that transparently bridge end-user devices—including commercial smart phones, tablets, and cameras, as well as military tactical radios—with the xMax network, and a mobile control switching center specifically designed for expeditionary deployment.
