Bingen, Washington, U.S.A. May 12, 2022 – Sagetech Avionics has been selected by the National Security Innovation Network (NSIN) to be part of the Propel-Economic Development Initiative (Propel EDI) program.

In collaboration with four other small businesses, Sagetech will help solving the challenges to next-generation DoD operations: supporting flight operations in austere environments.

Problem: Mobile Instrument Landing System
Air Force Partner: Shogun Sparkcell, Kadena Air Force Base
Mission: Develop a mobile instrument landing system to support airfields and landing zones anywhere, anytime, and in any weather. However, the technology must also enable small teams to operate, communicate, and navigate with energy independence during operations in austere environments.

“We are excited to partner with NSIN to develop critical technologies for our warfighters. As global defense threats migrate towards more technically advanced adversaries, it is essential that DoD and the industry work together to rapidly develop technologies that can be employed in an Agile Combat environment such as the Mobile Instrument Landing System. Sagetech’s expertise in developing complex aerospace and defense electronics and innovative sensor fusion solutions puts this challenge right in our wheelhouse.”

Tom Furey – CEO of Sagetech Avionics
