  3. Aircraft on Ground (AOG) Logistics

    Every day, the FAA's Air Traffic Organization (ATO) provides service to more than 42,000 flights and 2.5 million airline passengers across more than 29 million square miles of airspace.  When an aircraft is grounded it takes a team with skill and knowledge to address the issue, as well as quick access to the tools and parts necessary for repair.  Depending on where the aircraft is grounded, these resources can be difficult to locate.

  4. Do I need EMI Shielding?

    EMI Shielding is used in a wide range of applications and the EMI Shielding market is forecast to grow at an annual rate of 5.5% between 2018 and 2024.

     

    What is Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)?

    First, let’s take a look at what Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is and how it affects your application. Electromagnetic interference (EMI), also called radio-frequency interference (RFI), is a disturbance generated by an external source that affects a circuit.  This disturbance can disrupt the performance of electronics devices, equipment, and systems that are critical in industries like RAIL, Aerospace, Defense and Transportation, among others.  The changes in electrical currents and voltages that can cause EMI can be both natural and man-made, including ignition systems and cellular networks used for mobile phones.
