The KIZ tax credits have been indispensable in [our] growth, allowing us to build our cleanroom, hire a new Director of Engineering, and cover gaps in payment due to Federal Government funding fluctuations. We are now hiring two new staff due in no small part to the extra funds, which helped us go from R&D to our first major weather satellite instrument contract.
