YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y., 1 July 2005. U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) officials are asking scientists at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., to support advanced integrated circuit research.

IBM will support the U.S. Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Microsystems Technology Office in Arlington, Va.

Work will center on millimeter wave silicon germanium (SiGe) technology for military and commercial applications such as multi-gigabit-per-second-wireless communications, high-resolution radar, and integrated remote sensors.

The company is working under terms of a $5.8 million contract awarded June 30 from the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in San Diego on behalf of DARPA. The contract number is N66001-05-C-8013.

The 14-month contract includes five options, which if exercised would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $16.1 million. Work will be in Yorktown, N.Y., and will be finished by December 2008.
