Aerospace & Defense

A technology-based warfare approach continues to drive the defense electronics industry. Forecast International defines the following eight segments for Aerospace and Defense:
  • Airborne Electronics
  • C4I – Command, Control, Communications, Computers & Intelligence
  • Electronic Systems
  • Electronic Warfare
  • Radar
  • AN Equipment
  • Electro-Optical Systems
  • Land & Sea-Based Electronics
The defense industry as a whole is trying to discern the direction for defense spending as priorities shift within the national budget over the next few years. Key Electronics has manufactured products for the Aerospace and Defense industry for years and believes manufacturing costs can be lowered through the appropriate outsourcing arrangements. Key Electronics is positioned as a strong provider to the Aerospace and Defense industry given the following qualifications and characteristics:
  • Classified as a Small Business with less than 500 employees
  • Certifications include ISO 9001 and AS9100
  • Processes are designed to meet IPC-610 and IPC J-STD-001 Class 3 levels with the appropriate adjustments at needed inspections.
  • Export Management Compliance Program in place including ITAR Registration
  • Traceability provided for materials, processes, Certificates of Compliance and shipping
  • Indiana is strategically and geographically positioned to become a leader among states in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) market. Acting as a one-stop shop facilitating collaboration between state, federal, and private interests, the National Center for Complex Operations (NCCO) allows both public and private entities “best value” access to Indiana’s unique wealth of real operating environments for UAV research and development, testing, evaluation, and training.
  • Key Electronics is located within 2-3 hours of several Indiana defense assets including NSA Crane, Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, Camp Atterbury, Jefferson Proving Ground, Grissom Air Reserve Base, the 181st Intelligence Wing, the 122nd Fighter Wing of the Indiana National Guard and several State Universities.
