Akhan Semiconductor has received $120K for winning the third phase of the U.S. Army's competition in search of expeditionary technologies.

The company said Monday it won as a finalist of the Army's Expeditionary Technology Search or xTechSearch 2.0 program and secured an opportunity to demonstrate Miraj Diamond protective coating.

The diamond-based glass coating is designed to protect directed energy and electromagnetic weapons of the service branch's future vertical lift aircraft. Miraj Diamond is built six times stronger and 10 times harder than Gorilla glass and other similar materials.

The Army's xTechSearch program seeks nontraditional technologies that would help the service branch address modernization requirements.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to leverage our expertise in this field to service the needs of the military and intelligence communities," said Adam Khan, CEO at Akhan.
