History

Hi-G-Tek was founded in the 1990s by a group of engineers who are experts in sensing and wireless technologies and micro-electronics. They recognized that there were similar logistics challenges in different markets that could be solved by combining wireless communications with miniaturized sensing devices and embedded, long lasting power sources. They also developed ground-breaking ruggedized sensors for military applications that could be used in extreme outdoor conditions and for monitoring weapons and critical equipment in long-term storage in military armories. Incorporated in the US in 2006, Hi-G-Tek is headquartered in Rockville, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C.
