Congratulations to Keith Ulvestad, Plant Manager for Raven Aerostar's protective wear team, for being chosen as our June team member spotlight winner!
The pandemic situation has cast shadows of uncertainly, constraint, and anxiety throughout the world. However, moments of hope, positivity, and community support have also shined through during this difficult time — even right here at Raven...
Raven Industries (NASDAQ:RAVN) announced today that Raven Aerostar has added a new solution to its advanced radar suite. The HiPointer 100 is a lightweight, highly-mobile, power-efficient coherent radar that is ideal to track targets in difficult radar clutter conditions. Due to its light weight, the system is highly mobile, enabling a single person to deploy the system and move locations quickly.
On Monday, February 3, 2020, Raven sponsored the Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Forum at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SD Mines) in Rapid City, SD. The event was attended by about 100 female engineering students, as well as numerous SD Mines faculty and staff. Sara Venhuizen, Raven Aerostar Systems Engineering Team Lead, represented Raven as part of the forum's panel discussion.
To encourage and educate young women in STEM, a recent Raven Aerostar research and development flight carried a special guest to the stratosphere. Barbie® courageously made the trek to space via a Cyclone Zero-Pressure Balloon System to provide a beautiful display of our stratospheric platforms. This was then used to educate 25 Junior Girl Scouts from the Sioux Falls area at our "Solving Great Challenges: Connecting and Protecting the World" event in January 2020.

Read how the trio led efforts to successfully navigate this ambiguous situation.
