Mission Instruments Company was founded in 1988 in response to a growing demand for specialized equipment and instrumentation for lightning and atmospheric physics research, as well as thunderstorm warning devices for real world applications and problems facing industrial, government and military organizations.
The founder, Ronald C. Binford, serves as chief engineer and owner of the company, bringing over thirty years of experience in the electronics field to the company. He has worked mostly in scientific instrumentation design and construction, as well as data collection, reduction, and archiving at such facilities as New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, Lockheed (Martin) Engineering and Sciences at the White Sands Test Facility of the Johnson Space Center, and Lightning Location and Protection, Inc. (now a part of Vaisala Global Atmospherics). Mr. Binford was instrumental in the initial design and development of LLP's well-known Lightning Location system, used around the world. He has specialized in solving field reliability problems for many types of electronic, electrical, and mechanical systems, and has extensive experience in combining various technologies to produce optimum results.
The TheiaVu™ Series is a range of benchtop inspection systems that allow the user to take a wide variety of measurements, and to record repeatable, reliable data to improve processes.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
