Terrax Inc. is opening an assembly and test facility in a technology area next to Hewlett-Packard’s Boise campus, the Gardnerville, Nev.-based subsidiary of Brazilian Mining Corp. said in a release. An address was not listed.
Terrax integrates image data and hyperspectral imaging – which collects and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum – to provide real-time detection and alert systems.
The Boise facility provides Terrax with necessary operational space and enables the company to expand client relations operations for marketing and technical resources to support increasing demand, Terrax President Murray Owen said. The location allows the company to expand as required and draw from a local technology labor base to grow operations, he said.
The company said the expansion comes on rising demand from offshore customers, and in response to requests from early adopters of its Theia system. Theia aims to provide network-integrated early, real-time detection of trace substances up to 300 feet away.
A company spokesman could not be reached.
