Kaonetics Announces Partnership with Center for Innovation
Will Create Access to Federal Labs, Contacts for Partnerships and More
Kaonetics, which recently moved its headquarters to Fort Worth, is developing multiple technology platforms based on energy waveforms with potential applications in military, law enforcement and other industries. Among other things, testing shows that Kaonetics’ “directed energy” technology can stabilize improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which have become the number one cause of death and injury to American service members.
“CFI's unparalleled access to federal labs and the Department of Defense’s intellectual property portfolio will give Kaonetics the potential to fast track its ground-breaking technology,”
The Arlington, Texas based CFI is a catalyst for technology led economic development, facilitating and enabling the integration of industry, academic and government research with access to capital and talent.
“Kaonetics is precisely the type of company the CFI seeks to become part of our exclusive network of only 40 affiliate partners nationwide,”
Kaonetics is developing its environmentally safe directed energy technology to create platforms with multiple applications, such as detecting drugs, guns, explosives and other contraband, in vehicles and containers, and behind walls. The technology can also be used to shut down electronic devices, such as IEDs, computers and even a car’s ignition as the vehicle is fleeing from police.
Using a completely separate technology platform, Kaonetics’ Circular Polarized Antenna (CPA) can provide a sharper signal than traditional antennas in rough terrain, metropolitan areas and other locations where signals from traditional antennas would be obstructed. It has potential applications in military, law enforcement and consumer use.
Through the CFI, Kaonetics joins TechComm (Technology Commercialization & Manufacturing)
According to Hawkins, Kaonetics’ partnership with the CFI will also provide:
Contacts with major contractors. Kaonetics is seeking to focus on further developing its technology, while working with major defense contractors and others that have the capital and relationships already in place to commercialize Kaonetics’ technology.
Fast-track technology development. The CFI is one of only four federal “partner intermediaries”
Workforce recruitment. The CFI will provide access to the best and brightest recruits from universities, industry and its network of companies.
Rapid and extensive access to potential clients and partners. The CFI has a top-tier network of member companies and contacts in the industries of interest to Kaonetics.
Synergistic technology. Technology available through the CFI may complement and add value to Kaonetics’ technology.
“I can think of no more important strategic initiative for Kaonetics than establishing this relationship with the CFI,” Hawkins said. “This network enhances the technological and industrial advancement of the Kaonetics’ directed energy and CPA technology significantly.”
