About Our Sponsors

From federal agencies to private industry, our partners support our expertise in avionics engineering through a variety of research projects. Sponsoring agencies have come to depend on the expert knowledge, quick response time, and practical results we offer in the development, implementation, and modification of navigation, communication, and surveillance systems.

Along with practical expertise in a number of navigational systems, the Avionics Engineering Center has a reputation for establishing workable schedules to complete contract-sponsored projects within an acceptable time frame. We respond quickly and effectively in critical situations, with three “flying laboratories” equipped for testing and measurement, and we have staff members on call to handle problems on location.

Our staff takes pride in their unique ability to combine theoretical studies and practical application of avionics engineering to handle projects from concept to demonstration with a minimum investment of both time and money.
