NERDS™ Selected a “Great Ideas” Competition Finalist

at the

2011 Department of Defense Maintenance Symposium


Ogden, Utah. August, 2011:  Universal Synaptics Corp. announced this month that their Neural Electronic Repair & Diagnostic System (NERDS™) has been selected as a finalist for the annual Great Ideas competition at the Department of Defense Maintenance Symposium and Exhibition 2011.  The DoD Maintenance Symposium and Exhibition is the premier annual event for DoD maintainers and their industry counterparts.  

The Great Ideas competition provides a forum for the sharing of new and innovative ideas relative to maintenance technologies and processes. Universal Synaptics Corp. is one of six finalists selected from all eligible Great Ideas submissions for the honor of competing in this years’ symposium.  The competition will take place on Monday, November 14th 2011 in Dallas, Texas.

“To be selected as a Great Ideas competition finalist two years in a row speaks to the viability of the technological advancements we continue to make as a company,” said Ken Anderson, Universal Synaptics Vice President of Sales & Business Development.  “I believe our NERDS™ solution will prove to be every bit as valuable to the Department of Defense as last years’ Great Ideas competition winner, our IFDIS™(Intermittent Fault Detection and Isolation System).  To have the opportunity to participate in this competition again is very exciting”.

 IFDIS™ was selected as the Department of Defense Maintenance Symposium Great Ideas Winner in 2010 and The Tibbetts Award winner for 2011. The Tibbetts Award is given by the U.S. Small Business Administration to recognize outstanding small businesses who participate in the SBA’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

Since 1996, Universal Synaptics Corporation, based in Ogden, UT., has been recognized as the industry leader in detecting and isolating elusive intermittent faults.  Their research into the primary root causes of intermittent /No Fault Found (NFF) problems and the massive digital testing void that exists today with conventional scanning test equipment led to the development of the patented Intermittent Fault Detector (IFD), hardware neural network and all-lines-all-the-time wiring / circuit analyzer test solutions and the Neural Electronic Repair & Diagnostic System (NERDS™).  For more information, please contact Universal Synaptics (801) 731-8508.
