Sabtech Industries is a high technology company that has been providing specialty data communications solutions for military and government agencies worldwide since 1985.
Starting with the industry’s first NTDS board for PCs, our board line has evolved to keep pace with continuous advances in computer performance and architecture. With new products continually under development, Sabtech remains on course as a leading provider of up-to-date military communications products that meet the needs of our customers as they transition from legacy systems into an open systems environment. Our current board products connect navy computers and peripherals to the most common commercial open system architectures in use today, including VME, PCI, PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMC) and CompactPCI (cPCI). Today, Sabtech’s NTDS boards are widely used in naval systems in the U.S. and around the world. Building on our MIL-STD-1397C NTDS expertise, Sabtech broadened its scope to include interface products based on MIL-STD-188-203-1A (TADIL A) and NATO STANAG 4146. TADIL A is used throughout the world for shipboard and airborne data links. STANAG 4146 is closely related to NTDS and supports shipboard communications in NATO countries.
In the 1990's Sabtech developed turnkey replacement systems for many of the Navy’s aging peripheral devices. The Sabtech Military Equipment Replacement System (SMILES™) replaces tape drives, disk drives and I/O consoles with up-to-date technology and performance. SMILES is currently in service with the U.S. and foreign navies. In 2006, the SMILES product line was expanded by the introduction of the Sabtech Peripheral Replacement System (SPRS™), a rugged variant to meet the most demanding shipboard environmental requirements. Working closely with Lockheed Martin, an adaptation of this product, the Rack Mountable Cabinet (RMC), was made available as a variant of the AN/UYQ-70 family of COTS-based navy systems.
To help customers with system integration, Sabtech developed the NTDS I/O Analyzer (NIA™), a powerful test tool used in the development and maintenance of NTDS systems. First introduced in 1994, it was replaced in 2002 by the NIA-II™ with greatly enhanced power and features.
In 1996 Sabtech developed SNAPS™, an embedded multi-tasking operating system that turned Sabtech VME NTDS I/O boards into distributed processors. SNAPS produced such significant processing gains that it was designed into many mission-critical systems, and even today remains a key factor in their performance.
In 2002 Sabtech introduced its own line of PMC carrier cards, making it possible to increase the number of communication channels in a system while conserving space and costs. In 2005, the OWL™, a PCI-based IRIG-B reader/generator board, was introduced and is now extensively used in commercial and military applications.
Progressing further, Sabtech introduced the PowerNet™ product line of NTDS to Ethernet servers in 2006. PowerNet™ supports the US Navy’s migration to network-centric open architecture combat systems.
