The greatest danger for most of us is not that we aim too high and we miss it, but that we aim too low and we reach it. – Michelangelo

Technology Development Process

1. Concept

Focus on High-Value Technical Concepts
Our team of experts use state-of-the-art modeling tools to assess prospective solutions, innovate, and conduct trade studies to overcome barriers to early commercialization.

2. Validation

Thorough Solution Validation
Computer modeling and laboratory experiments. Successful proof-of-concept demonstrations provide the basis for prototype development.

3. Prototyping

Realization of Planned Product Attributes
Achieved by engaging product development and manufacturing engineers in collaboration with prospective users in prototype development and testing.

4. Market

Product Features Tuned to Meet Market Needs
We commercialize directly or via joint ventures, spin-offs, technology transfers, or patent licensing. We often engage commercialization partners in all technology phases, starting from Concept Development.
