Racal News, February 2000 announcing their acquisition of Inotek, Ltd. which was founded by SJ Foti only three years earlier.

In the three years prior to the acquisition, SJ Foti secured investment capital, recruited a small team of experts in the field of mobile antenna technology, developed winning BTS antenna products, won the Orange,UK frame contract against international competition in competitive field trials and secured the T-Mobile (formally One-2-One) contract. This made Inotek an attractive company acquisition target.
