PTEK released details of several past custom RF military and government projects.

They include work on computer/radio/GPS communications for the Army Land Warrior project; a wideband jammer for the Olympic Games; a project for the Air Force allowing remote transmission to initiate the self-destruction of failed launch vehicles and missiles; and a multiple-frequency band jammer for convoy protection against improvised explosive devices or IEDs.

The company has also provided a 500 watt transmitter for use in the Air Force's Commando Solo special operations aircraft, and various self-contained FM broadcast systems for remote operations.

The projects are all completed and the company is now able to release limited details about them. Project dates vary over the past eight years.

PTEK makes solid-state FM transmitters, power amplifiers and translators; it is based in California.
