Mr Gemeny will lead Syntonics’ efforts to expand current product sales into new applications and markets, while maintaining Syntonics’ commitment to addressing evolving customer needs with innovative solutions. Steve joined Syntonics in 2007, bringing 30 years of engineering, sales, and program management experience from COMSAT, Orbital Sciences, and Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. He has held several executive positions at Syntonics including; Director, Engineering and Director, Advanced Programs.
Syntonics’ business model is to use R&D projects and university partnerships to create new products and develop technologies, which are then commercialized. The company’s two first product lines, FORAX RF-over-Fiber communications systems and Handheld Tactical Antennas, have evolved through this process. Since introducing FORAX in 2005 and tactical antennas in 2007, Syntonics’ sales have averaged a compound annual growth rate of 26% and 2013 sales are forecast to increase this average.
Syntonics provides advanced RF-over-Fiber systems and innovative RF technologies for military, civil, and industrial markets. FORAX™ (“Fiber Optic Remote Antenna eXtension”) RF-over-Fiber radio communications systems are deployed around the world in 24x7 mission critical operations. FORAX-HARC (High Antennas for Radio Communications) RF-over-Fiber radio relay systems are deployed today in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Our Handheld Tactical Satellite Antennas provide lightweight, rugged, high-gain performance in the field and our body-worn SINCGARS antennas have improved soldier safety.
