 Person Locator

Earthquakes kill because people are buried under rubble.  We are researching and designing a device that will locate survivors under the rubble and tell rescuers where the person is located for quick extrication.



 Solar Energy

We are working on two key solar projects that we feel will make a huge difference in the solar energy industry.  If you have technical ability in electronic control systems or chemistry/material design then join us.
