You and NI Will...

August no longer signals the end of the summer but rather the excitement, energy, and inspiration of NIWeek.

This year at NIWeek 2014, the NI AWR Design Environment™ took center stage (literally) as our long-time customer FURUNO Electric Co. not only presented their weather radar system for the detection of guerilla rainstorms but also took home the top honor— Application of the Year in the NI Engineering Impact Awards.

Furuno found that co-simulating the digital and analog sections as made possible by NI AWR Design Environment and LabVIEW software readily allowed them to model the system-level performance of this beneficial weather radar system.

Furuno and NI will change the way the citizens of Japan prepare for these torrential downpours that cause flash flooding and wind damage. And thus the Impact Award was apropos. Take a look at this video to see where NI is going and how we impact the world by helping engineers solve their toughest challenges. Perhaps it will inspire you and we'll be showcasing you at an NIWeek soon.
