Starfire Industries LLC specializes in innovative plasma engineering
across a range of markets, including aerospace/defense,
nuclear/homeland security and manufacturing/semiconductors. Plasma
technologies are ubiquitous across industry, touching nearly every
computer chip produced and every satellite flying over the earth. As a
result, there are many novel applications waiting to be discovered to
improve a product or process.

Starfire's core competency is in plasma engineering, where we are
currently developing advanced plasma technologies with application to
nuclear fusion, industrial and semiconductor processing, and space
propulsion:
