PHOENIX, Ariz. Honeywell has acquired privately held Rocky Research, a Boulder City, Nevada-based technology company specializing in thermal, energy, and power management solutions.

This acquisition is intended to expand power generation systems, energy storage, and power and thermal management systems portfolio. It will also aim to combine Rocky Research’s research and development capabilities with Honeywell’s reach and engineering integration, test, and production capabilities.

The combined, differentiated capabilities of Rocky Research and Honeywell is intended to help reduce the size, weight, power, and cost of thermal and power management and hardware systems. Rocky Research will be integrated into Honeywell’s Aerospace business.

According to the companies, Rocky Research will be held as a wholly owned subsidiary focused on power and thermal research and development. Rocky Research’s current location in Huntsville, Alabama, will remain an integration and testing site, and its headquarters in Boulder City will serve as a research and development center. 

Rocky Research has previously been awarded contracts supporting various U.S. Department of Defense projects, including providing power and thermal management systems to one of the U.S. Army’s high-priority programs.
