Chatsworth, January 2009 - Aitech Defense Systems Inc., the world’s first and largest independent manufacturer of open architecture board and subsystem level products for harsh environment defense, aerospace and astronautics applications, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2009 as a leading provider of rugged embedded computing components and systems to a variety of military, aerospace, harsh and mission-critical systems designers.

Since its founding in 1984, the company has led the embedded industry in performance and innovation for real-time, hard deadline computing systems with particular emphasis on providing the highest on-board functionality, the widest temperature range, exceptionally low power consumption and the quickest time-to-market.

Aitech is the only company that still provides true Mil-Spec temperature operational performance (-55°C to +85°C) through its extensive component screening and pre-qualification process as well as via both pre- and post-production qualification testing. 

Roger Rowe, CEO for Aitech, noted, “Aitech has a long and very rich history of ‘firsts’ in our industry — a testament to our ongoing commitment of improving technology for the benefit of our mission critical customers.  In 1985, we developed and delivered true military SAVA (Standard Army Vetronics Architecture) compliant, 6U x 160 mm VMEbus SBCs three years earlier than any other company in this new and emerging market.  And, we were the first company that supplied, and internally radiation-qualified, multiple VMEbus products for use on the International Space Station (ISS).  In fact, over 100 of our SBCs and PMCs are still in use on the ISS today...demonstrating the long-term reliability of our products and sub-systems.”

Rowe continued, “Aitech also developed the first true radiation-tolerant 3U CompactPCI COTS embedded computing products for use in Earth-orbit satellite and manned space vehicle applications, giving system designers in ultra-harsh environments, such as aerospace and military applications, access to cost-effective, reliable embedded computing solutions.”
