“Our project with Orthogone – the development of control algorithms of adaptive antennas for military and industrial use – was a great success. We were able to attain a 2X increase in data rates in networks using these schemes.

Orthogone has assembled the best programmers, system architects and hardware designers for embedded systems. They are top notch gurus in their field and I would recommend them to any organization in need of technical solutions.”
