Military aircraft are equipped with sensitive avionics that perform vital tasks necessary for optimal flight operation. High frequency vibrations can dramatically shorten the accuracy and service life of the equipment if not properly mounted.
Shock Tech provides mounting solutions for many fixed-wing, rotary-wing and unmanned military aircraft; providing mission-critical equipment with effective vibration isolation and shock attenuation.
- Targeting Pods (FLIR)
- Auxiliary Power Units (APU)
- Engine Management (FADEC)
- Electronic boxes
- Guidance/Navigational Systems
- IR Systems
- Ignition Exciters
- Counter Measure Electronics
