Aerospace and Defense

For our Aerospace and Defense Customers, Failure is Not an Option

At Hi-Rel, we fully understand mission critical and sensitive electronics and their associated development and deployment cycles, particularly for defense and aerospace applications.  The development cycle could begin as much as a couple of years in advance of the first shipment of production products and during this time period, Hi-Rel works collaboratively with our customers, providing design review and recommendations for best geometry and material recommendations based on the application.  Prior to design finalization, Hi-Rel’s lean manufacturing process allows it to produce small batch sizes for customer design validation.

With over 40 years of experience supporting aerospace and defense, we also have a deep understanding of our customers’ on-going goals, especially in today’s evolving military threats and shifting geopolitics, as well as shifts in commercial air travel and satellite communications.  Beyond our manufacturing capabilities, above all, Hi-Rel puts its customers at the center of its business, with an intense focus on quality, service and quick turnaround time.

Simply, we are part of the military and aerospace electronics industry and we get it! When our customers face hermeticity issues or thermal management issues or solder issues, we know how to solve them; and we are equally equipped to resolve reliability issues, such as outgassing after a device has been sealed. If there is something preventing your electronics from performing at their maximum capability, we can help identify and solve it.

Our three facilities are ISO 9001:2008  Registered and we have been ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulation) compliant at our US facility since 2004.  ITAR, a US Federal Government set of regulations, controls the export and import of defense related articles and services on the United States Munitions list.
