In the 1960s, our founder, Dr. S. Harry Robertson, pioneered the development of crashworthy fuel systems. Dramatic improvements in rotorcraft post-incident fire suppression from the Vietnam era to today are due in large part to fuel containment. Recognizing the same need for safety on the ground, Robertson expanded its efforts to ground systems in 2010. Robertson now drives enhanced ground systems survivability.
Today, Robertson continues Dr. Robertson’s passion for company-funded research to design, develop, deliver and sustain fuel containment systems that enhance the survivability of aircraft and ground vehicles. Robertson is proud that it has never accepted any government or customer development funding.
