 Thermo Electron Technologies Corporation develops advanced technology in electro-optic and electro-acoustic systems, signal processing, materials technology, lasers, and direct energy conversion. Currently, the company is developing several commercial products, including a sonic CT (computerized tomography) system for real-time imaging of soft tissue and internal organs, a passive microwave camera that enables pilots to "see" through fog and clouds to enhance navigation, and a wind-shear detector to provide pilots with advance warning of wind shears.
