RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

As a defense contractor, Taylor Devices actively participates in funded Government directed research, in addition to the Company's internal R&D program.  Research projects are structured within three areas:  basic research, applied research, and product development.  The scope of the Company's research activity includes passive and active structural control, natural and man-made environmental effects, fluid chemistry, interdisciplinary interfaces, seal development, structural dynamics, and vehicle control and handling. Corporate policy dictates that virtually all basic and most applied research is conducted internally by full-time R&D Company employees.  This assures maximum width and breadth of emergent R&D activities with a minimum of corporate limitations imposed on research personnel.

PLANNING FOR FUTURE TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS

Taylor Devices' is constantly refining and improving its Shock Isolator designs and is tremendously proud of the performance of the Company's products in both military and commercial service.  Projects are now underway to adapting active control-structure interfaces into the firm's isolation systems.  These will allow the integration of electrically powered active controls into shock and vibration control products of this new century, when control by artificial intelligence or neural solution techniques are expected.
