May 2015: Specialized Arrays files 1st Utility Patent: "System and Method for Detection and Orbit Determination of Earth Orbiting Objects." This Radar Equatorial system works on the principal that ALL (non-station-kept) Earth orbiting objects will pass through a strategically placed array beam and with advanced hardware and algorithms the objects can be characterized with unprecedented accuracy immediately.
February 2016: Specialized Arrays files 2nd Utility Patent: "System and Method for Widely-Spaced Coherent Transmit Arraying Using a Remote Receiver." The new technology is for coherent transmission from VERY WIDELY SPACED antennas (kilometers apart) as well as 'Quick Deployable' missions. It is a closed loop method applicable to Near-Earth missions such as battlespace awareness, intelligence gathering, ground to satellite communication and Space Situational Awareness. It avoids the limitations of retro-directive methods.
October 2015: Specialized Arrays successfully completes DINCOM Program
June 2018 : Specialized Arrays granted Utility Patent "System and Method for Detection and Orbit Determination of Earth Orbiting Objects." This Radar Equatorial system works on the principal that ALL (non-station-kept) Earth orbiting objects will pass through a strategically placed array beam and with advanced hardware and algorithms the objects can be accurately characterized immediately.
April 2019 : Specialized Arrays granted Utility Patent "System and Method for Widely-Spaced Coherent Transmit Arraying Using a Remote Receive." The remote receiver need not be cooperative. Applications include EW, directed energy, and over-the-horizon COMM.
December 2015: A 5-year multi-award IDIQ R&D contract with a ceiling of $375 million was awarded to Minerva Engineering by the Department of Defense. Specialized Arrays is excited to be part of their team! SAI principals have decades of experience in Signal Intelligence.

September 9, 2013: Company name change: IntelArrays Inc.(IAI) changes name to Specialized Arrays Inc. (SAI)
March 15, 2012: NASA selects IntelArrays for a sole-source KaBOOM contract; solicitation number: NNH12429421R Notice Type: Pre-solicitation (fbo.gov)
"IntelArrays' principals are the originators of and the only team in the world that has demonstrated operationally feasible, real-time radio frequency adaptive optics techniques. Their unique qualifications will enable future architecture of the radar system and technologies that will enable capability and performance enhancement of orders of a greater magnitude while at the same time improving the operability and decreasing the operations and maintenance costs of the current system. NASA/HQ intends to award a sole source contract to IntelArrays, Inc. The sole source authority used is only one responsible source 10 U.S.C 2304(c)(1) Only one responsible source and no other supplies or series will satisfy agency requirements ( See FAR6.302-1)."
January 2012: IntelArrays is established by research scientists Ms. Kathleen Andreozzi Minear and Dr. G. Patrick Martin. Ms Minear is an Applied Mathematician and Senior Research Scientist. She was selected for a Corporate-Level award for her hi-fidelity mathematical modeling and simulation suite for array configuration, algorithm implementation, and performance assessment. Dr. Martin was formerly Chief Scientist of Harris Corporation. He was awarded their highest recognition, Harris Fellow, for achievement in 2005 as their principal developer of adaptive signal processing technology for communication s and information processing systems at Harris.
They offer advanced adaptive antenna array technologies for aerospace, defense, and commercial customers. They specialize in coherent transmit and receive arraying of widely-spaced antennas. The founders have decades of experience in adaptive signal processing and image processing solutions and are inventors on about 35 patents.
June 2011: Dr. G. Patrick Martin and Ms. Kathleen Minear receive NASA Headquarters Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medals for conception and demonstration of: Widely-Spaced Large Reflector Uplink Arraying with Real-Time Atmospheric Mitigation.
In September 2010, on a government program (NASA), the founders demonstrated widely-spaced uplink arraying including real-time atmospheric mitigation and continual internal phase synchronization. The 12 meter antennas were about 60 meters apart; about 2000 wavelengths at X-band. They showed a significant improvement in coherent transmission at low elevation angles using their real-time atmospheric mitigation technology. Their method is considered by NASA to be the 1st operationally feasible solution for simultaneous transmission from large widely-spaced ground reflectors.
NASA Headquarters: "IntelArrays' principals (Martin & Minear) are the originators of and the only team in the world that has demonstrated operationally feasible, real-time radio frequency adaptive optics techniques. "
