Connections of the Heart

Making a positive impact on the world around us is at the core of who we are and what we do. Delivering technology solutions that improve people’s lives is one way we do this. Another way is by contributing time and resources to worthy causes. Whether in support of our home communities or around the globe, Rajant is committed to doing more and going beyond what is expected in service to others.

September 11 Attacks

Impacted by 9/11, co-founders Robert Schena and Paul Hellhake established Rajant in 2001 after recognizing the significant shortcomings in traditional wireless mesh technology, particularly with mobile voice and data networks used by first responders. As a result of the attacks, the Rajant team developed a new robust mesh technology that allows these networks to be fully mobile and operate reliably in even the most demanding environments. To this day, Rajant remembers September 11 and continues to give to beneficiaries, including the police departments from Pennsylvania’s Lower Merion, Tredyffrin, and Upper Merion Townships.

COVID-19 Pandemic

With the onset of COVID-19, Rajant again took action, this time to meet the critical communications needs of field hospitals, inflatable emergency shelters, and other temporary triage centers by offering a rapidly deployable, self-healing, and highly secure solution for connectivity. Rajant donated wireless networks in the form of a healthcare kit to state emergency medical centers in Pennsylvania (US) and Kentucky (US) to aid those working and recuperating at pop-up sites during the crisis. Additionally, Rajant used existing 3D printers to produce face masks, which provide the same degree of protection as surgical masks, and donated them to Goodwill who gave the masks to team members in e-Commerce, retail, and operations.
