DARPA taps Radant for RF MEMS project

Nov. 26, 2002 — Radant MEMS Inc. said it has been selected by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency for a multimillion-dollar radio-frequency (RF) MEMS Improvement Program.

Under the DARPA contract, Massachusetts-based Radant MEMS will serve as the prime contractor and principal device designer in the effort to deliver RF MEMS switches for military and commercial applications. Radant has selected Advanced MicroSensors Inc. (AMS), also of Massachusetts, as its subcontractor. AMS will provide foundry services to Radant.

Radant, a unit of Radant Technologies Inc., was incorporated in May to commercialize RF MEMS switch technology invented at the Foxboro Co. in the 1980s and recently licensed from Analog Devices Inc.
