[DDET (Testimonial)]

“In December of 2008, one week before the holiday break, L-3 Nova Engineering decided to undertake a design with an extremely tight schedule. With fewer than the necessary internal resources available, L-3 turned to Rapid Automation to add the manpower needed to complete the job in a timely fashion. Rapid Automation proved to be very knowledgeable in VHDL and PCB design, was very quick to react to design needs and changes, and provided excellent results with minimal direction. And as a testament to their commitment to the success of the program, Rapid Automation met very aggressive deadlines during a time of the year when many would rather not be working. L-3 Nova Engineering will definitely work with Rapid Automation whenever similar needs arise in the future.‚ÄĚ
