Our Client Testimonials
OFRN provided GhostWave with the resources we needed to take our company to the next level. As a result of the OFRN contract, we gained credibility, which led us to multiple SBIR and STTR contracts along with Army xTechSearch awards. The exposure from the OFRN contracts also introduced us to new Air Force contacts, new academic contacts and DoD Prime connections. GhostWave cannot thank OFRN enough for their support.

OFRN SOARING Round 3 & 4 recipient
Working with OFRN and Parallax has helped us tremendously. The OFRN effort and support opened us up to new partnerships with other Ohio small businesses and universities that allowed us to expand our reach and technologies and services we offer. Our OFRN effort opened the doors to a wider range of customers and organizations and provided us the visibility to advance our technologies. Our OFRN efforts directly allowed us to demonstrate our systems to defense, civil, and commercial customers beyond our previous reach.
