Government

Since our inception, Third Wave Systems has found great value participating in joint research and development projects various government and R&D organizations. Through these partnerships, Third Wave receives resources to connect with other experts and improve the capabilities and performance of our software; in turn, the government receives innovative solutions to pressing problems that could not have been found otherwise.  Over the years, Third Wave is honored to have worked on R&D projects for the U.S. Air Force, Army, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Department of Energy (DOE), Missile Defense Agency (MDA), National Institute for Standards & Technology (NIST), National Science Foundation (NSF), and Navy (NAVAIR/NAVSEA).
Interested in leveraging expertise on up-and-coming machining technology that results from these government initiatives? Our leverage partnerships are a great way to become involved and influence the potential direction of new technology, as well as network with other industry leaders.
