Recently a Massachusetts Labor and Workforce grant was awarded to SI2 Technologies to pursue AS9100 Certification. AS9100 replaces the earlier AS9000 and fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9000, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them. As a premier supplier of custom RF components for DoD systems, SI2 Technologies will institute these new standards as part of an institutional quest for continuous improvement. According to Dr. Joseph Kunze, SI2 Technology plans to be AS9100 compliant within the year.
