McLaren Technology Group today announced a new multi-year partnership with Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIRG), a global leader in wireless connectivity platforms, that will build on both companies’ reputations in leading-edge, high performance technologies.


Airgain will build on its expertise in high performance antenna systems to drive technological advancement within the automotive sector. McLaren Technology Group’s expertise will allow both brands to accelerate the wireless revolution that enables our increasingly connected world.



Airgain’s partnership with McLaren extends to the broader business, including McLaren Applied Technologies, as the two organisations explore the co-creation of wireless connectivity solutions. In addition, Airgain will contribute to the performance of McLaren Racing through integrating technology on-car, off-car and at the McLaren Technology Centre.





Zak Brown, Executive Director, McLaren Technology Group, commented:



“Airgain is a new brand to Formula 1 so we’re delighted they have chosen to partner with McLaren. The technology being pioneered by Airgain is leading the way in high performance wireless connectivity, both in the automotive industry and the enterprise and home environments.



“Airgain already partners with and supplies some of the world’s largest blue chip brands. Its pedigree in the design and integration of high performance embedded antenna technology will produce real performance benefits, both on and off the track, for McLaren and Airgain.”





Chuck Myers, President and CEO at Airgain, said:


“Partnering with McLaren is a strategic move that will build a powerful and mutually beneficial relationship. McLaren has a proven record of successfully applying its technologies to real-world business situations across a range of sectors. This partnership forms a pivotal part of our growth and expansion strategy.



“Our expertise will help the McLaren team enhance its wireless connectivity capabilities, aiding its performance both on and off the track. Utilising the platform we have created with McLaren, we will co-develop engineering solutions to solve the challenges of tomorrow. Bringing together the best engineering minds from across the globe sits at the heart of our business.



 Our partnership with McLaren gives us access to truly world-class engineering experts who will collaborate with our own talent, enabling us to better support the hyper-connected world of the future.”




Airgain has a crucial role to play in the connected vehicle market by providing antenna technology in support of advanced wireless connectivity solutions for in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, and vehicle-to-infrastructure applications. It has a portfolio of connectivity solutions and a wealth of experience in developing antenna applications for government, public safety and enterprise applications.



This partnership follows Airgain’s recently announced membership of the 5GAA, underlining Airgain's commitment to the research and development of new advanced solutions for the connected car, and contributing to define the new connectivity landscape that will revolutionise the transportation world as we know it today.
