The Royal Academy of Engineering awards annually the Academiae Dilecta prize with the aim of acknowledging companies whose professional activity is based on the study of and research into scientific and technical rationale in engineering, their technological applications and technical operations, as well as aspects involving projects, development and running of their creations.
In the 2016 edition, New Infrared Technologies (NIT) has been chosen as the winner of this prestigious acknowledgement. The mission of New Infrared Technologies (NIT) consists of putting onto the market state-of-the-art infrared detectors at highly competitive prices, with the aim of fostering innovation and development into new applications based on IR detection. This general interest and high-quality purpose has led to market acceptance for the company’s products, and been a key factor in its consideration as a firm worthy of the award on the part of the jury.
Mr. Elías Fereres, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, gave the award Academiae Dilecta 2016 to Mr. Arturo Baldasano Supervielle, President of the Board:
