Transtector Systems has joined the EDGE? Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative that allows industry, academia, and government to work together so as to enhance the delivery of technology and innovation to the warfighter. Sponsored by General Dynamics C4 Systems and located in Scottsdale, AZ, the EDGE provides facilities and labs for developing and testing technologies, products, and systems for the modern warfighter, who must be mobile, connected, and informed. Transtector provides surge protection, EMP protection, and power quality engineering services. Roland Oliveria, Transtector Systems’ E3 Programs Manager, noted “Transtector is proud to be part of the catalyst, GD EDGE, to put the best C4 E3 protected solutions in the hands of our nation’s defenders.” See the original announcement on the Transtector Systems’website.As projects and challenges grow more complex, we hear more about networks, joint ventures, and strategic alliances.
