Nor-Tech’s technology is built to survive the day-to-day mishaps. When necessary, repairs are straightforward with little downtime. If damaged beyond repair, Voyageur desktops are easy for the company to clone.

It has an annual budget of $6 billion, state funding of $1 billion, gifts, grants and contracts that total $1.5 billion and an economic impact of more than $15 billion.
