This flexibility enables Infinity HealthCare and EPMG physicians to work more efficiently and effectively, provide continuous care, and maximize patient outcomes and satisfaction. VirtuMedix also facilitates the expansion of patient outreach by Infinity HealthCare and EPMG to people who are homebound or live in remote areas. The platform features an intuitive user interface that frees physicians and patients to focus on their interaction instead of the technology. VirtuMedix makes it easy for patients to upload data from their activity trackers and similar devices, while the clinical workflows streamline physician tasks such as documentation and discharge.
TeleCommunication Systems Inc. Announces the Availability of its New Deployable X/Y Tracking Antenna System
Mar 16 15
TeleCommunication Systems Inc. announced the availability of its new deployable X/Y Tracking Antenna System. Built on the proven technology of TCS' fixed X/Y antenna systems, the deployable X/Y systems are specifically designed for low-Earth orbit (LEO) and medium-Earth orbit (MEO) satellites in support of Earth observation, remote sensing, and telemetry, tracking and control for tactical applications. Future Department of Defense (DoD) reconnaissance applications will include the use of LEO small satellite technology for quick, cost-effective earth imaging. TCS' new X/Y Tracking Antenna System can be controlled or monitored from anywhere in the world. TCS currently provides X/Y antenna solutions to military, higher education and commercial customers. The X/Y Tracking Antenna System is offered with a 1.8-meter parabolic carbon petal reflector, which allows for light-weight transportation and a precision antenna surface that maximizes performance. The system provides single and multi-band frequency feeds from L-band through Ku-band, which allows one antenna platform to be used across multiple satellite missions. Ease-of-setup automated features include a self-leveling pedestal and differential GPS system that provides True North heading better than 0.1 degrees. These integrated features require minimal training for deployment. The system breaks down into two-man lift transit cases for ease of transport on commercial aircraft; two persons can set up the system in less than one hour. The deployable configuration offers the same benefits as the fixed X/Y systems such as no keyhole at Zenith, no cable wrap, low dynamic tracking, high reliability, cost-effective manufacturing, and short delivery times.
