— Special to the Camden News

Aerojet Rocketdyne and Southern Arkansas University Tech, both located in the Highland Industrial Park in East Camden, Arkansas, are excited to announce the latest collaborative engagement, helping to build strong career opportunities in South Arkansas.

Aerojet Rocketdyne recently donated a Computed Radiography (CR) system to SAU Tech’s Non-Destructive Testing and Training Lab. CR is a direct replacement for conventional film radiography. This method of radiographic testing uses a phosphorous imaging plate to capture x-ray images, a laser to extract the image from the imaging plate, and converts the captured data into digital radiographic image. CR is used in many industries to detect critical flaws in material, hardware, casting and assemblies. This CR system will give the students at SAU Tech real world experience with practical applications. This same CR equipment is currently used in the defense, oil & gas, and metal fabrication industries.

SAU Tech offers several Associate of Applied Science degrees. Classes for the Industrial Science & Technology degree with an Non-Destructive Testing emphasis are scheduled this fall. Visit SAU Tech’s website,, to learn more about this exciting degree plan and all the opportunities available. Visit Aerojet Rocketdyne’s website, to join an exciting company with an important mission supporting our nation’s defense.
