1. Ballard Technology
Ballard Technology is a leader in the development and manufacture of electronic hardware and software for aerospace, industrial, and commercial applications. Ballard began supplying avionics databus interfaces to the aerospace industry in 1986, and was one of the first to realize the potential in using standard computers as the host for specialized test equipment.
Products standards ranges from MIL-STD-1553 for military aircraft and ARINC 429, ARINC 664/AFDX, ARINC 708, and ARINC 717 for commercial aircraft. These and other standards are not limited to use in aircraft. They are utilized in many industrial and military applications such as process control, nuclear research, oil exploration, as well as surface, air and space vehicles.
2. Data Bus Products
Data Bus Products Corporation is the total solution manufacturing provider for all your Mil-Std-1553 requirements. Products ranging from couplers, cable assemblies, terminators/dummy loads, relays and custom connector parts.
3. Tech Source
Established in 1987, Tech Source has been a pioneer in high performance computer graphics hardware solutions for niche markets. With a strong engineering team, the company has evolved over the years, now serving several markets that include Air Traffic Control/Management (ATC/ATM), avionics, military and embedded systems with several COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) and tailored (custom) products. The product range includes graphics, imaging and video capture boards, H.264 encoders and high compression video recorders.
The Raptor product line has served the ATC/ATM market since 1995, with products deployed in over 35 countries through OEMs such as Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Thales, Indra and Telephonics. The products have evolved over the years through various technologies. The current Raptor 4000 product line is used in a major US program called the FAA STARS program, upgrading the nation’s Air Traffic Control systems.
The core of Tech Source’s strength has been the ability to design graphics solutions to satisfy specific customer requirements. Our extensive efforts have produced breakthroughs in graphics and imaging technology. From designing graphics processing units (GPUs) and high compression encoders to FPGA targeted special graphics/imaging algorithms, the company has a broad range of knowledge and offers product customizations and new product delivery in a matter of months.
The Condor product line includes a range of XMC/VPX based COTS products that are targeted towards extended temperature and rugged applications such as avionics, defense and industrial applications. Several of the Condor products have been chosen for major programs in the US and other countries.
The Re/Vue product line offers lossless recording at extremely high compression rates providing the best video recording solution in the ATC market. With local recording and easy integration into comprehensive recording solutions, it is expected to be the de-facto video recording solution in the coming years.
