What certification do you need?

Once we have your specification, you can trust us to develop the unit to meet your requirements. We will rigorously test every aspect from vibration and shock to aero compatibility and more to confirm that a unit is produced to meticulous standards. Back in the early 2000s, we were among the first companies to design units that meet DAL A – the highest level of design assurance certification. So you can be sure we have extensive in-house experience in providing certified products.

  • We can develop units to meet ARP, DO254 and DO 178 standards and certify our cycle of development to show that.
