Aerospace Introduction

Aerospace and defence fighter jet

Delivering today’s advanced aerospace and defence systems requires a partner who understands every aspect of your business.

Aerospace and defence applications in systems such as avionics, communications, guidance and radar systems demand the best in performance and reliability from electronic components. 

As an authorised source for some of the world's leading passive, electromechanical and interconnect suppliers, our portfolio includes products across all qualification levels including high reliability, mil-spec and rad hard space level, as well as a range of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) parts.

Tying it all together

At Avnet Abacus, we don’t take a one size fits all approach. Our pan-European team of field sales engineers and product specialists listen first in order to create a solution around whatever constraints you face, such as maximising performance while reducing Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) or ensuring product availability for long life programs. They work closely with our suppliers to offer you the highest level of engineering support for your design, helping you to ensure that your precision equipment performs well in harsh environments.
