TFX MISSION, TECHNOLOGY, AND VALUES:
TFX Associates is an independent research and development organization for scientists
and engineers driven to advance new technologies to practical applications. TFX continuously
pursues technical innovations with game changing outcome potential. Our mission is
to boldly explore new and challenging technical areas where few have ventured.
TFX products and services evolved from work in the optical sciences including laser-plasma
physics and optical remote sensing. The need for supporting technologies led to our
development of positioning, pointing, stabilization, and computer systems that have
resulted in new product areas including navigation and advanced computing.
The growth in unmanned and autonomous systems for land, sea, and air applications
has resulted in the need for appropriate navigation and control products. TFX provides
small rugged low-power navigation and control components and systems. These products
include attitude-heading reference systems (AHRS) and autopilots. The proliferation
of low cost GPS jammers has resulted in the need for the GPS anti-jam navigation
systems that TFX has developed.
Our specialized need for advanced computing architectures has resulted in the development
of reconfigurable computing platforms that can be applied to a wide range of digital
image, signal, and data processing and digital control applications. These reconfigurable
computing multi-processor platforms are ideal for demanding fault-tolerant applications.
Though our application areas are primarily national defense and homeland security,
TFX technologies are also used in commercial applications in the maritime, aerospace,
biomedical, manufacturing, and energy exploration markets. TFX welcomes inquiries
from these sectors and provides technical support to introduce new technologies and
assure successful outcomes.
As a technically innovative women-owned small business, TFX values talent, initiative,
diversity, and ethical practices in all aspects of our business. Above all else,
we at TFX value our customers. Our customer’s success is the key to ours and every
day we strive to assure mutual success.
