FreeWave Technologies is celebrating the one million flight-hour milestone for its military radio product line since it entered the market in 1997.

The milestone represents a 20% increase in logged flight time since just one year ago, said the company.

"We now have logged more than one million flight hours with some of the top military, government agencies and OEM's around the world," said Ashish Sharma, FreeWave chief marketing officer.

FreeWave offers radios for military applications including command and control of unmanned vehicles and robotics; biological and chemical sensing; asset tracking; UAVs and micro UAVs; guided parachutes; soldier training and war game applications.

Earlier this year, FreeWave partnered with Huntsville, Alabama-based MicroBee Systems to sell FreeWave products directly to federal customers through the US General Services Administration (GSA) Information Technology (IT) Schedule 70 Contract.
