Program Management

For more than 35 years, Signal Exploitation and Geolocation at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has provided design-to-production transition services to government and commercial clients. SwRI specializes in client-driven production, fixtures, testing, and comprehensive build-and-test documentation, which provides the transition from design to production and through the complete product life cycle.

Our staff of electrical, mechanical, industrial and software engineers, coupled with a skilled staff of technicians, work closely with our clients to thoroughly understand requirements, needs and expectations to successfully bridge the gap between design/prototype and end-item field deployable units.

SwRI offers support through any or all aspects of the design-to-production transition process to meet client needs. We offer both in-house and outsource production capabilities to provide an optimal mix of cost, schedule and performance results.
