Technology Development & Engineering



Necessity is the mother of invention, and the needs of the scientific community have led to countless life-changing technologies. Technology created for AUI managed facilities increases our understanding of the Universe and contributes to American competitiveness. We continue to create new user facilities, tools, components, equipment and much more to drive innovation and open new paths of discovery. Trust, customization, and precision are at the core of our engineered materials. When each component counts, rely on trusted materials and supply chains, crafted to specification, and machined to tolerances of ± 5 microns. We license and build custom technology for the scientific community, government, and industry.

From designing and building microelectronics to supercomputers, we have managed systems to create custom solutions to custom challenges. Many of the components we create and use are subjected to the harshest of environments at the highest altitudes and operate under grueling weather conditions and wild temperature changes.
