Resonant Sciences, located in Greene County, is a research and development firm focused on developing and transitioning innovative technologies and solutions to developmental and operational platforms. Their areas of expertise include FSS radome and antenna design and fabrication, custom electronic solutions, and RF measurements of materials, antennas, radomes, and subsystems. They were awarded $100,000 in February, in order to purchase equipment that will allow them to accept more specialized contracts.
The EDIP program is a competitive grant cycle, with two rounds of consideration each year. Greene County businesses with a proven track record and an expansion plan are invited to submit proposals for the next round beginning in March, 2018.
