308 Systems Develops Modular Flyaway Communications Kit Technology

Traditional flyaway communication kits are high cost systems focused upon a specific requirement. 308 Systems revolutionary Modular Flyaway Kit(MFK) technology enables rapid, cost effective and scalable man-portable communication system development.

Fort Collins, Colo., Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Revolutionizing the world of deployable Government communications systems, 308 Systems recently launched the Modular Flyaway Kit(MFK) technology highlighted at Throughout their 22 year mobile command/communications history(15 working directly with Army and Air Force National Guard units) 308 Systems has developed products and programs directly related to the unique needs of field deployed personnel. "Our new MFK concept allows unlimited flexibility in working with Government clients to develop deployable capabilities finely tuned to specific requirements, yet leverage the cost effective nature of modular design," said Mark Lueker, Director of 308 Systems.

The modular nature of the man-portable MFK technology provides Government deployed personnel with benefits including:

  • Enhanced end user field operations capabilities
  • Reduced procurement/O&M/Training costs
  • Streamlined acquisition process
  • Multi-agency cross platform combined procurements
  • Reduced satellite and cellular service costs
  • Dedicated year-over-year maintenance
  • Easy integration of future technology and system upgrades
  • Common baseline power, WiFi, backhaul comm modules
  • User specific operations modules

In order to successfully conceptualize, procure, develop and deploy these MFK capabilities, 308 Systems frequently works with A level Municipal/State/Federal technical and procurement personnel during pre-procurement system conceptualization and development, providing subject matter experts to support Government personnel in their quest for the highest performing man portable flyaway communication kits.

In addition to the MFK technical capabilities development, an appropriate procurement strategy further ensures successful program implementation and completion. For example, by aggregating basic MFK Power and Comm modules across multiple National Guard programs the Guard benefits from reduced costs, quicker deployments, and reduced logistics/maintenance/training costs.

The MFK concept provides multiple modes for End Users to obtain increased capability at a reduced cost through implementation of the common MFK architecture and then customizing the end user module for unit specific functionality. Furthermore, once deployed the MFK program concept provides multi-year training, maintenance and airtime provisioning which then exponentially increases client comm readiness, again with reduced costs.
