Manufacturing for Defense & Aerospace
We invite you to visit us in person to fully appreciate our turnkey, contract manufacturing capabilities and the added value we can provide for you. We have a knack for reducing customer's processes and can provide the engineering and scientific support you can depend on. Our facilities, testing capabilities, and engineering resources can further be leveraged to reduce your steps in the manufacturing and performance testing of complex assemblies.
Altair was the first local brazer to focus on microwave vacuum electron devices. Shortly after Altair’s inception, the company began specializing in Traveling Wave Tubes (TWT’s) that were primarily used in military radar applications.
The three main product lines we support are Coupled Cavity TWT’s, Helix TWT’s and Klystrons. A large part of our technical staff engineered these products prior to their employment with Altair and maintains excellent product knowledge, which we find invaluable when working with our defense customers
Today these same product groups are essential to many defense and commercial applications and are utilized in many radar and electronic countermeasure (ECM) systems as well as weather radar and air traffic control. Whether it’s for a fighter aircraft, missile seeker or a ground based or naval radar system, you can count on us to exceed your expectations.
"I didn't know you could do that..."
It is a comment we hear often when customer’s come to visit us. Whether it's our 10,000 sq. foot in-house CNC shop or the technical competency of the Altair Research Group (ARG) tuning designs for hyper performance...it all leads to our Defense, Avionics and Aerospace customers saving significant time and money where other brazers simply can’t provide this level of competency or service.
Waveguides Example: Rather than living in a paradigm of sending parts back and forth for machining, brazing, and RF testing due to a lack of a supplier's capabilities, customers discover the joy of true turnkey contract manufacturing and engineering with the ARG group.
