Hood River is an expanding technology hub for professionals chasing adventure.
Sierra-Olympia Technologies Inc. is headquartered in the Pacific Northwest, in the outdoor adventure town of Hood River, Oregon. We are an eclectic group of engineers, designers and industry professionals with a wide variety of backgrounds and skill-sets. When we’re not in the office or lab, we can be found scattered around the forests, rivers, and mountains just outside of town, clearing our heads and making the most of our surroundings. Quality of life leads to quality of work.
Sierra-Olympia Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1995 as a sales representation firm for advanced, cooled infrared camera technologies developed by Amber, a Raytheon Company.
The founders’ experience dates back to the earliest commercially-available, cooled InSb cameras developed in the late 1980’s. In 2010, the company was acquired by Hood Technology Corporation of Hood River, OR.
Sierra-Olympia’s expertise spans virtually all modern FPA-based infrared imaging technologies. We have grown to become one of the largest consumers of cooled MWIR component technology in the world.
Sierra-Olympia continues to support leading technologies in uncooled microbolometer FPAs, and build extensive experience in infrared optics development, integration and sensor-processor interfaces. We will continue to support custom solutions for OEM Integration and deliver products and services that exceed customer expectations.
