RUSTBURG, Va., April 26 (UPI) -- A facility used in engineering and testing of electromagnetic interference compatibility for the U.S. Navy and other customers has been expanded and modernized.
National Technical Systems said the upgrade to its facility in Rustburg, Va., was designed to make it a "one-stop shop" for Navy testing and that a new laboratory dedicated to EMI/EMC testing was built as part of the project.
"Our NTS Rustburg facility is a great example of our ongoing efforts to continuously upgrade our testing laboratories and engineering services capabilities to meet the evolving needs of all our customers," said Bill McGinnis, president and chief executive officer of NTS.
"The Rustburg facility, located close to Newport News, Va. and Washington, D.C., is now specifically equipped to serve the U.S. Navy and all its needs and shipboard applications. Defense has traditionally been an important market for NTS and we are making every effort to continue to provide the best and most complete services for our military customers."
NTS, formerly Dynamic Testing, was established in 1983 to conduct underwater shock and vibration tests for mission-critical equipment installed on U.S. Navy ships.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility is scheduled for early next month.
