R&D Overview | R&D ProjectsF-35/F135 | White Papers | Academics

The foundation that Third Wave Systems was built on was technical innovation. Having both R&D and commercial applications allows TWS to gain a better understanding of what is missing in the marketplace and in-turn, develop the technologies that are missing to enhance manufacturing.

Since the early 2000’s, Third Wave Systems has found great value in participating in joint research and development projects with  various government and research and development organizations. Through these partnerships, Third Wave Systems receives resources to connect with other experts and improve the capabilities and performance of both AdvantEdge and Production Module products. In turn, the government receives innovative solutions to pressing problems that could not have been found otherwise.

Over the years, Third Wave Systems has been honored to have worked on R&D projects for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Department of Energy (DOE), Missile Defense Agency (MDA), National Institute for Standards & Technology (NIST), National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Navy (NAVAIR/NAVSEA).

In 2017,  The U.S. Small Business Administration recognized Third Wave Systems as one of the 2016 recipients of the prestigious Tibbetts Awards for the company’s years of technological contributions to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program (read the full story).
