Gradient Technology is a Small Business incorporated in 1996. Our primary business is to develop processes and construct equipment solutions for the safe production or demilitarization of military munitions and energetic compounds.
Our corporate headquarters, engineering office, explosives laboratory, and equipment fabrication and integration facility is located in Elk River, MN. We also maintain a field operations workforce located at NSA-Crane, Indiana. Our technical personnel are highly trained in the areas of chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, controls automation and programming, equipment field installation and testing, production operations and support, high-hazard environments, hazardous waste management, environmental permitting, safety and hazards analyses, and project management.
During our 20+ years of service to the Defense Industry, Gradient Technology has continuously worked as either a Prime Contractor or Subcontractor on R&D-level and Production-level military contracts. Gradient Technology’s explosive laboratory and process operations meet full governmental standards as required by the Department of Defense, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Environmental Protection Agency, and Department of Labor. Because of the sensitivity of the work Gradient Technology performs, all Gradient Technology’s facilities are controlled access.
Our organization is structured in a way that allows us to enter a program at any phase in its lifecycle and immediately begin providing technical and operational support. Gradient Technology’s technical capabilities can be utilized to help resolve program issues on-demand or we can function as a continuous resource to a program team from project initiation to conclusion. We have the resources and flexibility to provide technical support in any way that meets the needs of our customers.
