Strict Standards for Military and Aerospace Electronics Industries
Electronic circuitry and parts produced for the Military and Aerospace industries must always be manufactured to the most exacting standards, and tested for compliance with strict guidelines. Given the fact that military electronics components and end products are often included as some of the most important equipment on mission-critical efforts by this country’s forces, there can be no room for error, or for inadequate performance. That’s why the manufacture of these parts and products must be undertaken by only those companies which have the very best reputation for producing high-quality, no-fail electronics products.
The aerospace industry has been closely aligned with the military for decades in the U.S., and for a long time their mutual interests were served by many of the same manufacturers. However, during the 1990’s, the aerospace industry began to emerge as more of an independent force in the market, and the civil aspect of the industry began growing faster and more steadily. Today the aerospace industry encompasses both military and civil components, and many of the same requirements are still shared by these two.
One thing that has not changed about the aerospace industry however, is the same thing that has also remained constant about the military – an insistence on very high quality and reliability. With the lives of so many people at stake in both these areas, it is thoroughly understandable why this would be so, and why such high standards are insisted upon for those companies acting as suppliers of electronics products to these two industries.
