Our client company has been producing precision crystal filters for radar for over sixty years and designs and manufactures RF & microwave solutions for data timing and radio frequency spectrum control in high reliability and harsh environment applications. In aerospace and defense markets the company’s digitally tuned filters support secure communications in the presence of electromagnetic interference. Low drift, highly accurate oscillators provide reliable frequency lock for ground, vehicle, air and satellite communication as well as electronic countermeasures. Vibration and shock resistant crystal clocks sharpen radar images and help monitor commercial aircraft engine performance. For Internet communication, their very low noise and packet sync clocks help increase bandwidth and prevent data loss in cellular base stations, micro and femto cells and Wi-Fi access points. Millimeter wave filters ensure corporate and telecom point-to-point links stay error free. On the lab bench or consumer electronics production test floors, the company’s ultra-low noise frequency reference oscillators insure accurate measurements. When public safety is paramount, wide temperature range/waterproof cavity filters ensure reliable radio communication. Satellite links, phased array radars and anti-IED jammers use their RF power amplifiers to boost the signal to the antenna. The company is based in Central Florida with manufacturing in the United States and India and is vertically integrated with deep experience in basic material science, design and manufacturing. With AS9100 Rev C and ISO 9001:2008 certification the company provides sales and support worldwide and is a recognized service leader supporting innovation and reliability at major OEMs including Cisco, Raytheon, Ericsson, Harris, Rockwell Collins, UTC Aerospace and nearly 2,000 smaller clients through distribution partners.
