Aerobotix, Inc. and Shape Fidelity, Inc. have announced the finalization of a full stock merger of all their business operations.

The companies have merged all assets, intellectual property, contracts, and people to strengthen the complexity of offerings to our cutting-edge customer base. Shape Fidelity leads the industry with highly-customized, precision metrology solutions ranging from medical implants to full-up aircraft and spacecraft; Aerobotix's expertise includes robotic painting, sanding, and inspection systems on a wide variety of missiles, fighters, bombers, and UAVs. Aerobotix and Shape Fidelity have been working together on critical aerospace projects for over 10 years, growing to rely on each other while implementing advanced metrology hardware and software into turn-key automation systems alongside some of the world's largest Aerospace companies.

Aerobotix and Shape Fidelity partnered on multiple projects to push DoD and Aerospace manufacturing capabilities to areas that have never been reached before and will now be poised to work and grow together to benefit both our customers and our newly combined team.

Founded in 2005, Aerobotix has 42 employees and over 125 robotic systems currently operating in the United States and abroad. Founded in 2010, Shape Fidelity has 23 employees with several stationed in critical support positions at facilities like NASA. "We've been working so closely for nearly ten years that it just makes sense for us to consolidate operations and still give our customers high quality, cutting edge solutions," says Rob Black, President of Shape Fidelity.

When compiling my Top Five, I tend to let the reader views guide my choices. Oh, sure, sometimes a news item is significant well beyond the reads it receives; that’s why this is an editor’s picks, not a strict Top Five. Still, readership habits inform my choices. That makes it even more interesting when a week demonstrates a theme so convenient as to seem contrived. Take this week, for example. In this week’s top five, four of the top five are news reports on mil-aero topics. You, dear readers, gobbled up the military and aerospace news this week. The outlier is, as we all would expect, a conference report from our very own Pete Starkey.

When we started planning this issue on working remotely, we knew we’d have to speak with Stephen V. Chavez, chairman of the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA). We recently asked Steph to discuss some of the security measures that his company employs and what his experience has been like since he began working out of his Arizona home office full-time several months ago.
