BATH, England--SRT Marine Systems plc announces the granting of US patent 9,473,197 and European patent EP2951930 for its reversible time domain duplex (RTDD™) transceiver technology.
Developed entirely in-house by SRT’s world-class radio technology engineering team RTDD is integrated into SRT’s AIS transceivers to simultaneously reduce cost and size whilst also improving performance.
The technology enables a specific single RF architecture to be used simultaneously for both receiving and transmitting through electronic reversing of the RF chain between receive and transmit. This is achieved through a complex combination of intelligent selection of intermediate frequencies and ultra-fast switching.
Simon Tucker, CEO of SRT Marine Systems plc said: “Since 1999, SRT have been the global leaders in AIS core technology development. This patent demonstrates the innovation and capability of SRT’s R&D department who have again delivered technology that will deliver substantial benefits to our AIS transceiver customers. I would like to personally thank our team for their excellent work and look forward to announcing their next technology innovation.”
