Delivering comprehensive technology solutions and applications for science and engineering from concept through production.

  Our rich history includes developing spaceflight experiments placed on the outside of the Russian Space Station Mir during the first joint Russian/US spacewalk. This early research led to many current products and services: thermal control and conductive paints/coatings for spacecraft and terrestrial applications; laser-source simulators for seeker-readiness tests of laser-designated weapons; optical properties measurement instruments; optical properties measurement services (reflectance, emittance, SRI, LEED); paint/coating characterization; communication systems for NASA; and support of the Unified NASA Information Technology Services.

In The News:
  AZ Technology releases new Portable instrument for obtaining Solar Reflectance Index (SRI). The SRI 1000 measures thermal emittance as per ASTM E408 and solar reflectance at air mass 1.5 (terrestrial applications) as per ASTM C1549.These two measurements allow the calculation of the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) as defined for environmental certifications such as Cool Roofs and LEED.

NASA Press Release: AZ Technology coating used on Curiosity Mars Rover.


"Curiosity's paint-like spray coating, AZ-2100-IECW, was exposed to the harsh space environment for four years as part of the Materials on International Space Station Experiment (MISSE) investigation. The coating, tested and developed by AZ Technology in Huntsville, Ala., met stringent outgassing requirements and withstood temperature extremes and thousands of hours of ultraviolet radiation from the sun....AZ Technology's coating was applied on the Multi-Mission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator, or MMRTG. This power unit converts the heat from decaying plutonium-238 into electricity that the Curiosity rover needs to survive." Oct, 2012.
