IRT (formally TVI) was incorporated January 28, 1977 when it introduced its patented Radiant Heating Panels to the commercial marketplace. In 1980, IRT responded to a request from the Department of Defense (DoD) for technical assistance in the area of military thermal targets. The DoD was interested in the application of IRT's radiant heating panel technology to the development of thermal targets in support of M60A3 tank gunnery training and certification. IRT has been ISO 9001:2000 Certified and our products and services are used by the Army National Guard and Air Guard in all 50 U.S. states. US Army has deployed IRT shelters in Puerto Rico, Korea, Germany, Iraq, Afghanistan, and with the Ministry of Defense in Australia. We design, manufacture and market a variety of products, including rapid deploy shelter systems for first responders, first receivers, government, military, and commercial markets.
