O-MC Signal Research, Inc. is a Vietnam era veteran-owned small business located in Bloomfield, New Jersey, just ten miles west of Manhattan. Our core business base is wireless in-building design, development, and installation. The company was founded in 1988. Initially, our business focus was the defense industry where we bid and won two Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts in the area of Quantum Cryptography. We also had some of our key technologists teach technical short-courses in digital signal processing, optical signal processing, and other post-graduate scientific and engineering courses. Our work in quantum cryptography led to a U.S. patent titled Free-space quantum cryptography system (U.S. patent number 6,289,104). The patent was awarded in September 2001.
Our primary business base today is the design and development of in-building systems for enhanced wireless phone service using GSM, CDMA, or iDEN waveforms, and high-speed networks using IEEE 802.11 a,b,g,&n technologies. We also design and install wireless broadband networks to replace standard T-1 wired circuits. Our preferred equipment for T-1 circuit replacement is Motorola Canopy Wireless Broadband Access equipment.
In March of 2005 the company was awarded a three-year contract by the state of New Jersey Bureau of Purchase for Wireless Devices and Services. This contract has been extended to the end of July 2011.
Prior contracts include SBIR contracts from the Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Division, and a contract with the U.S. Army (contract DAB03-03-A-0007) for wireless services.
Other services provided include wireles telephone cell-site drive-testing using CW signal generators and companion receivers. Data is provided to cell-site designers to determine the viability of a potential new cell-site. We also provide skilled engineering talent for cell-site design and optimization.
In January 2005 the company was awarded a four-year contract by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority for As Needed Telecommunications Cosulting Services.
