Firm Hoping To Help The US Navy Go Wireless
Posted: 12-May-2002 [Source: Newsbytes]

[3e Technologies installed a wireless network on the Navy destroy USS Howard via a $45 million government contract. 3e is using this as a launching point to expand its presence with corporate customers looking for similar wireless services.]

by Yuki Noguchi -- "Aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Howard, newly installed wireless technology allows a sailor on the deck to e-mail questions to a shipmate working in the engine room several decks below. Shipboard technicians can also send and receive status reports from their handheld personal digital assistants to a land-based engineer. Sailors can even synchronize their handheld computers with their desktop computers by swiping the pocket-size devices across the infrared beams transmitted by the new technology's boxes.

The Rockville, Md. firm that installed the new wireless network on the ship in January, 3e Technologies International Inc., clearly is hoping that the pilot program on the Howard works out. The company, a subsidiary of Rockville-based Aepco Inc., an engineering and research firm that does government contracting, was awarded a five-year, $45 million contract through a federal small-business program to develop technologies that will help the Navy better monitor its systems.

The technology is a potential boon for the Navy, which is considering broadening the network upgrade to some other destroyers and cruisers as well.
