Dielectric Receives Grant to Develop Wireless Broadband Access Lab
Raymond, ME - June 23, 2009 - Dielectric Communications has been awarded a grant in the amount of $2.2 million from the Maine Technology Institute's Maine Technology Asset Fund (MTAF) to develop a wireless communication laboratory at the University of Maine.
Garrett VanAtta, president of Dielectric Communications, said, "We expect the laboratory to evolve into a global center for wireless innovation, which will attract new federal and industry grant funds to the University and better prepare engineering students for high-tech positions. And, since other Maine businesses will have access to the technology, the promise of wireless broadband access for all Maine citizens may soon become a reality."
Within the Maine Wireless Communication Laboratory, Dielectric and the University of Maine will work to create new capabilities in environmental testing, high-power RF and microwave circuit design, and wireless networking and communication system design.
The Maine Wireless Communication Laboratory is expected to begin operations by the end of 2009.
