Intelligence community venture capital firm In-Q-Tel has made an investment in Fortify to help the Boston-based company further develop its 3D printing technology for use in electronics design and production.
The two companies formed a partnership with the goal of bringing advanced materials and additive manufacturing systems to the radio frequency and wireless sensor markets, Fortify said Wednesday.
“The manufacture of complex, tailor-made components are essential for our partners–the U.S. intelligence and defense communities,” said Victoria Chernow, technology architect at IQT.
This is where 3D printing offers enormous potential and value.”
Fortify uses its patented Digital Composite Manufacturing platform to produce materials for RF and electronics applications.
