Versum Materials Announces Grand Opening of R&D Facility
Versum Materials, a leading semiconductor materials supplier, has marked the grand opening of its new research and development facility at its semiconductor materials manufacturing site in Hometown, Penn. The company’s corporate offices and materials headquarters are in Tempe.
The state-of-the-art R&D laboratory will synthesize and purify new molecules down to parts per billion impurity levels and below using the latest technologies. Researchers can assess the applications for these new molecules and scale up the molecules to larger quantities for customer evaluation.
The new organometallic compounds will be deposited on semiconductor wafers through cutting-edge technologies to test their performance for semiconductor applications. Additionally, the facility is capable of small-volume manufacturing, and advanced analytical and quality assessment.
Universal Avionics Helps to Upgrade Army’s Black Hawk
A partnership that includes Tucson-based Universal Avionics adds new operational capabilities to the U.S. Army’s Sikorsky HH/UH-60L/M Black Hawk helicopter while allowing it to retain all of its mission-critical avionics equipment.
With assistance from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Engineering Development Center and Prototype Integration Facility, and contractor Redstone Defense Systems, an instrument flight rules-capable flight management system has been integrated into the aircraft’s federated advanced navigation system program. This meets the program’s requirement to integrate a commercial off-the-shelf, FAA-certified navigational system for the incorporation of required navigation performance area navigation and global position system/area navigation requirement.
Universal Avionics is a leading manufacturer of innovative avionics systems offered as retrofit and forward-fit solutions for the largest diversification of aircraft types in the industry.
