Every moment of every day, they monitor the seas, skies and space for a range of threats including hostile enemy aircraft and cruise missiles. 

Advanced Microelectronics

Modern DoD sensors are built around a small number of components. The most critical of these are advanced microelectronics, which include semiconductors, and serve as the brain cells and powerhouse of advanced defense systems.

We partner effectively with leading universities, small businesses, research and development organizations, and defense agencies to achieve the best possible outcomes.

The GaN Advantage

We lead the industry in its use of Gallium Nitride to make the high-power microwave circuits that transmit and receive RF energy. Gallium Nitride, also known as GaN, is a glasslike material that offers key advantages over other RF semiconductors in energy efficiency, weight and power output.

The business makes military-grade GaN at its Massachusetts foundry and has achieved U.S. Department of Defense Technology Readiness Level 9 and Manufacturing Readiness Level 9 for the innovative tech, which means it’s proven in successful mission operations and ready for deployment.

The proof is in the final product, from the smallest circuit all the way up to a fully assembled array in the field.

Our sensors are vertically integrated to ensure readiness and resiliency from day one – key to maintaining a competitive advantage and protecting national security.
