Company Profile

Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) has provided research and development (R&D) services to commercial and government clients working to solve national and international problems since 1970. Our R&D staff is organized into six technology centers which address such critical issues as global and regional environmental quality and development of clean and efficient energy and propulsion technologies. In conjunction with ARI's research activities, we also manufacture and sell high sensitivity, fast time response instrumentation for environmental air quality monitoring and atmospheric research. These instruments include Aerosol Mass Spectrometers, Quantum Cascade Laser Trace Gas Detectors, Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitors (ACSM), Particle Optical Extinction (CAPS PMex) monitors, and ultrasensitive nitrogen dioxide (CAPS NO2) monitors. In addition, we provide mobile laboratory services with our own and commercial instrumentation to collect data while in motion for plume characterization, area mapping or portable deployment for photochemistry and transport experiments. ARI also designs, builds and utilizes remote sensing, surveillance, image processing, tracking and recognition systems for commercial and environmental applications and national defense.
