New Hampshire city Dover has been quietly gearing up to quadruple its chipmaking capabilities for fighter jets. The small city in the northeastern United States is about to become a hub for cutting-edge manufacturing, thanks to a major investment from aerospace giant Raytheon Technologies.
This giant in the aerospace industry has been looking to invest in many undisclosed tactical advancements recently. This investment in the chipmaking sector, however, is particularly noteworthy.
The state of New Hampshire is known for its old-world charm and scenic beauty, but it has long been aspirations to become a leader in the manufacturing sector as well. Raytheon’s determination to set up a facility in Dover for the manufacture of chips that will be used in the production of fighter jets is likely to act as a catalyst for more modern development in the rest of the state.
The new facility, to be set up with Raytheon’s endeavor, is to manufacture the advanced avionic chipsets and integrated systems that will help provide the United States Air Force with some of the most sophisticated aircraft in the world. It is expected to provide board level assembly services, as testSLI, burn-in services, and other engineering support for the military aircraft. The Raytheon Model 985 integrated avionic testing system will also be located at the Dover site.
Raytheon executives have confirmed that the company will collaborate with local suppliers to provide the necessary materials for the production of the advanced chipsets in Dover. They added that the initiative will not only create new employment opportunities but also help the local economy in a more meaningful way.
With their investment in the New Hampshire city of Dover expected to greatly enhance the chipmaking process for fighter jets, Raytheon stands to benefit in more ways than one. It will undoubtedly get access to new advanced technology and the process will also reduce the company’s dependence on foreign imports, thus helping to ensure that the military aircrafts are only using the most advanced and safe chipsets possible.
Dover is certainly in for a major boost, one that will open up plenty of opportunities for its citizens as well. The city is gearing up to quadruple its chipmaking capabilities, and the future looks bright indeed!
