SI2 Technologies in $4M Printed Electronics Research Collaborative

Gov. Charlie Baker announced the four-year MassTech grant, which will fund the university’s new Printed Electronics Research Collaborative (PERC), before a standing-room-only crowd at the Mark and Elisia Saab Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center on Jan. 13. 

The grant is the third of its kind awarded by MassTech’s Collaborative Research and Development Matching Grant Program, a $50 million capital fund created in 2012 to support research projects that spur innovation, cluster development and job growth. Matched by $12 million in industry support, the grant will outfit laboratories and research space at the Saab Center, home of the Raytheon-UMass Lowell Research Institute (RURI). 

Raytheon is one of the founding members of the collaborative, along with Rogers Corp. of Burlington, SI2 Technologies of Billerica, MicroChem of Westborough, Triton Systems of Chelmsford, MC10 of Cambridge and FLEXcon of Spencer. 



SI2 Technologies to pursue AS9100 Certification 

Recently a Massachusetts Labor and Workforce grant was awarded to SI2 Technologies to pursue AS9100 Certification. AS9100 replaces the earlier AS9000 and fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9000, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them. As a premier supplier of custom RF components for DoD systems, SI2 Technologies will institute these new standards as part of an institutional quest for continuous improvement. According to Dr. Joseph Kunze, SI2 Technology plans to be AS9100 compliant within the year.

SI2 Technologies Awarded Navy Contract to Design and Build Ultra Wideband Electronically Steered Multi-Beam Transmit Array

SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) was recently awarded an SBIR Phase II contract to design and develop a wideband, electronically steered multi-beam transmit array for Navy surface ship EW systems. The electronically steered multi-beam wideband array technology used was developed originally for the Navy on another program in 2011, the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ). This wideband technology was leveraged in the Phase I effort to demonstrate a 10:1 bandwidth array with wide instantaneous bandwidth and high efficiency at targeted frequencies. In Phase II, the wideband array concept will be refined through modeling and hardware to a 20:1 bandwidth. During this new program, an antenna demonstrator with integrated wideband RF electronics will be fabricated and tested to demonstrate performance including wideband, wide scan capabilities. The recent award also has an option where SI2 Technologies will perform system level testing to further mature the technology and mitigate risk for transition.
