Company Overview

Company History

Founded in 1987, Signal Engineering focused on innovative technical solutions to the satellite communications needs of two primary markets.  These markets were transmitters and receivers for Meteorological, Hydrological, and Environmental monitoring industries and the satellite aided Search and Rescue (SAR) emergency beacon manufacturers community.

Advanced products in both of these markets grew out of innovative technical solutions developed by Signal Engineering under Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Projects awarded by NOAA and the U.S. Navy.  Since 1987, many derivatives of these products have been developed to meet changing requirements and the ability to operate on all the worlds meteorological and SAR satellites.

Our high performance Data Collection Platform (DCP) transmitters now operate on GOES, METEOSAT (MSG), INSAT, GMS/MTSAT, ARGOS, SCD supporting the collection of environmental data around the world.  More than 9500 transmitters have been deployed as key elements of our distributor/partners automated weather and hydrological monitoring stations.

In ten years since 1996, Signal Engineering has deployed 36 GOES Satellite Direct Readout Ground Stations (DRGS) Receiver/Demodulators.  Our current Higher Data Rate receiver/demodulator can support up to 16-channels of operation simultaneously and is the smallest receiver/demodulator of its kind.

Our Navy SBIR triple frequency personal locator beacons have evolved into the AN/PRC-149 and the AN/URT-140 as a joint development with one of our partners.

  • The AN/PRC-149 is a hand held triple frequency personal locator beacon 121.5/243/406 MHz with voice communications and embedded GPS.
  •  The AN/URT-140 is a triple frequency emergency locator beacon with special timed modes and functions essential for operation with an aircraft ejection seat to assist in locating the downed aircrew.
