case study

Perfect for a Range of Applications

Guarding State Secrets with Flying Fox® Enterprise

Using Sidekiq™ modules to create Flying Fox® Enterprise, a robust RF-sensing solution, we unlocked a new way to safeguard facilities from unauthorized wireless devices, allow for swift removal of threats, and boost first-line defense.

Building the Game-Changer in Rescue Operations

When CENTUM needed an SDR solution for their Lifeseeker search and rescue system that was compact yet powerful, we jumped at the chance. In the span of just one year, our Sidekiq™ M.2 card became a silent hero: helping CENTUM save over 100 lives every month.

Find Your Perfect Matchstiq™

Matchstiq™ S10

The first member of Epiq Solutions’ next generation configurable radio platform, the S10 comes in a tiny form factor, with one RF receiver and one RF transmitter, a tuning range of 70 MHz to 6 GHz, and bandwidths up to 50 MHz.

Matchstiq™ S11

The Matchstiq™ S11 includes all the capabilities from the S10, or the option for two receivers in a phase coherent pair, both covering a 70 MHz to 6 GHz range.

Matchstiq™ S12

The S12 builds on the S10, extending its tuning range down to the HF range and below (<1 MHz). It also includes seven banded pre-select filters (sub-octave from 400 MHz to 6 GHz).
