Customers, vendors, city officials and employees are invited to tour the newly constructed lab, which was designed and created by MacB’s Advanced Technology Group. This is the third year the company has hosted Oktoberfest.
The Wright Innovation Lab was established to support the warfighter capabilities needed by MacB’s electronic warfare customers to execute specific mission requirements. Specialized research, development, test and evaluation personnel will focus on the design, integration and testing of prototype sensor systems and subsystems.
“With new construction completed last month, we now offer in-house leading edge technical facilities that enhance our capacity to meet high-priority warfighter requirements,” said Tim Lawrence, senior vice president and general manager of MacB’s Advanced Technology Group. “We have already captured interest from prospective customers and partners that we hope leads to additional R&D missions, thus enabling new capabilities for the U.S. Air Force.”
“MacB has built a reputation over three decades for its state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, outstanding products and services, and professional staff,” said Sidney E. Fuchs, MacB’s president and CEO. “In 2016, we’ve increased our lab capabilities and overall technology readiness levels in Dayton and Fayetteville, NC, highlighting MacB’s commitment to meeting and exceeding the emerging market needs of our military and DOD customers.”
