Geeks and Nerds has acquired the assets of Q-Track in a purchase between two Huntsville high-tech businesses.
“We are excited about incorporating the technology and management team of Q-Track into Geeks and Nerds,” said GaN CEO/CTO Dr. Jonn Kim. “Our combined knowledge and experience position us well for advanced research and technology in the areas of electromagnetics, wireless communications, position and location, cyber electromagnetic activity, and radar.
“The talent and tenacity of Q-Track’s management and employees have created innovative product lines and unique intellectual property. Their success as a R&D company will complement GaN. I can’t wait to make magic happen.”
Q-Track CEO Stephen Werner said the two companies will make a perfect match. The company provides indoor location, safety, and RF solutions.
“I’m delighted by the enthusiasm with which GaN has embraced the opportunities offered by Q-Track’s capabilities and technology,” he said. “GaN’s culture of ethics, innovation, and creativity mirrors our own.”
Q-Track co-founder and CTO Dr. Hans Schantz will serve as principal scientist of GaN and will help in the transition process.
“We’ve always been geeks and nerds at Q-Track,” Schantz said. “This just makes it official.”
