Xi Systems takes 1st place in the TeamWERX Alternative Video Transmission Concept

Xi Systems partnered with MATTERealise to enter the TeamWERX Alternative Video Transmission Concept to explore how Special Operations Forces could receive video of important events from partner forces. Our innovation does not rely on any existing infrastructure and has the potential to send non-real-time video and other data over distances of up to 100 miles line of sight, meeting the aims of the concept challenge.

Simon Ballantyne, Managing Director of Xi Systems stated: “We are excited our innovation has been selected as the winner of the concept challenge. Impacting the US SOCOM community in this way is a promising start to Xi Systems entry into this market segment. We thrive on delivering a positive difference to the warfighter and we look forward to continuing to support SOFWERX in their mission”.

In the pursuit to rapidly respond to warfighter needs, SOFWERX developed TeamWERX, an online prize challenge venue designed to engage new and provocative thinkers at scale. SOFWERX was created under a Partnership Intermediary Agreement between Doolittle Institute and the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Located in Tampa, Florida, SOFWERX has a very dynamic environment designed to create a high rate of return on collision for all participants. Using a growing ecosystem, promotion of divergent thought, and neutral facilitation, our goal is to bring the right minds together to solve challenging problems.
