Do Innovative Companies Outperform?

Amid the wildly disruptive business landscape, companies are innovating for a more durable source of competitive advantage. As this typically does not show up on their traditional financial statements, a company’s true potential can be grossly undervalued by relying exclusively on these. We believe that quantifying their innovation capacities is the key valuation input needed to identify outperformers. Our latest whitepaper, based on GlobalData’s proprietary Patents Database, evaluates companies’ intellectual capital as a vital factor in differentiating their offerings as well as driving future growth. Access the report to understand:
  • How are disruptive forces accelerating trends in innovation?
  • Why do traditional approaches to company analysis fall short in fully capturing companies' potential?
  • How can patents be leveraged to build portfolios that capture innovation-alpha?

VPT Inc, a HEICO company (NYSE:HEI.A) (NYSE:HEI), today announced that its GaN-based SGRB series of DC-DC converters has earned the Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards Platinum recognition, its highest honour.

This distinction recognizes companies in the aerospace and defence electronics industries who have made groundbreaking contributions and innovative solutions to solve design challenges.

The SGRB series of DC-DC converters are specifically designed for the harsh radiation environments of space applications. Using advanced GaN-based technology, the SGRB series was developed to provide a solution that increases power supply efficiency, resulting in reduced system size, weight, and cost. With up to 95% efficiency, the GaN technology results in greater efficiency compared to traditional radiation-hardened silicon products. It has been designed specifically for space-borne telecommunications where high efficiency, low noise, and radiation tolerance are imperative.

“We are honoured that our SGRB series has been recognized with the platinum level award by the Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards judges,” said Jeremy Ferrell, Director of Engineering at VPT. “We appreciate the recognition of the work we put into developing this innovative GaN-based DC-DC converter for space applications.”

Military and Aerospace Electronics began presenting the Innovators Awards in 2016, giving recognition to the top entries across three levels: platinum, gold, and silver, as determined by a panel of expert judges from the aerospace and defence community. The Platinum award level recognizes a superb innovation, which is characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need and/or a new level of performance, efficiency, ease-of-use, or additional beneficial quality.
