      Advances in spectrally efficient Feher’s Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (FQPSK) and Feher‘s Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (FQAM) patented technologies, commercial and government “dual-use” FQPSK products and Test & Evaluation (T&E) results are highlighted in this overview paper. US and international customer requirements/systems, programs and recent deployments and standardization programs are also described. FQPSK doubles the spectral efficiency of PCM/FM Telemetry and of Feher patented Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK or FGMSK) and of alternatives, while FQAM quadruples the spectral efficiency of these systems. The predominant focus of this presentation is on an overview and advances of IRIG 106-00 standardized FQPSK technologies. FQAM systems will also be described. Use of FQPSK for applications such as telemetry, data links, clear mode, TDMA ,CSMA and CDMA, OCDMA, WCDMA as well as OFDM – COFDM will be included in the presentation.
