Our experience includes Reverse Engineering, Product Design improvement
and technology impact study. EDELís Product Line, diverse and proliferated,
through various weapon system consisting of the following five utilities:
1) ECS (Environmental Control System) consisting of temperature,
pressure sensor instrumentation and electrical control.
2) FQIS (Fuel Quality Indicating System) including transmitter liquid
quantity, low level sensors, fuel flow and indication and control.
3) PS&C (Power Supply, Power Conditioning Circuitry) consisting
of voltage regulators.
4) B&P (Build to Print). EDEL also produces specific boxes,
such as radar modules and associated electronics.
EDELís Product Line consists of over 400 National Stock Numbers
and FAA PMA Certification.
EDELís goal is to support an aging aircraft platform, where production
capabilities are diminished and or reliability of products does
not meet MTBF (mean time between failure) expectation.
Due to our specialty, EDELís Engineering Department is equipped
with state of the art investigating tools such as electron microscope,
spectrum analyzers and complete environmental laboratory including
vibration, humidity, pressure testing and all electrical parameter
WHAT DO WE DO?
Engineering Development Corporation (EDEL) cage 00QR4, OSV45 designs,
develops, and manufactures sensors, avionics, and electrical hardware
for military aircraftís, submarines, missiles, tanks and helicopters.
EDEL's product line ranges from aircraft fuel management systems
and fuel quantity transmitters to a variety of low level sensors,
density compensators, special instrumentation, temperature sensors
and electronic cockpit display systems.
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Our experience includes the development and manufacture of thermocouple
harnesses for jet engines, thermocouples for industrial purposes,
total temperature sensors, transducers, and resistance temperature
devices. Currently we are conducting extensive research and development
to improve and upgrade the performance of these components and systems.
EDEL has been involved in the design, development, and production
of a variety of aircraft instruments over the past several years.
EDEL has successfully reverse engineered a number of aircraft instruments
and sensors for military aircraft applications. This equipment has
been successfully developed, completed qualification testing, produced
in quantity, and delivered ahead of schedule.
EDEL's products are designed
to maximize product ability thus providing a cost savings. Our design
concepts are based on a selection of materials and processes that
enhance the unit shelf life and increase reliability (MTBF). Qualification
testing is conducted in accordance with applicable specification
requirements prior to full scale production.
MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL AND
EDEL has experienced engineering and management teams with proven
capability and significant achievements in the aerospace industry.
Technical innovation and cost of ownership reduction is an integral
part of EDEL's design philosophy. This is achieved by the strict
adherence to our approved Statistical Process Control (SPC) plan.
EDEL is an approved manufacturer for all United States military
branches. EDEL has performed on contracts for hardware production
and equipment modification for the Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy,
and Coast Guard. EDEL is dedicated to the design, development and
production of the highest quality product. To achieve this objective,
we stress full compliance to the quality assurance provisions of
each contract and strict adherence to applicable military specifications.
The EDEL quality assurance
system is a fundamental control system influencing all aspects of
program performance. The quality assurance systems is described
in EDEL's quality manual. Our production quality assurance procedures
are monitored by DCMOA El Segundo, CA, which is the responsible
agency for EDEL and is cognizant of the current military contracts
being produced by EDEL. EDEL's quality assurance methods and procedures
comply with MIL-I-45208A standards and have traceability in accordance
with MIL-Q-9858A and ISO 9000. The EDEL production facility is approved
by all the QA review boards and DCAS-QAR.
EDEL has significant reverse engineering capabilities in the areas
of primary control and sensing devices for military aircraft, ground
support units, and missiles. The Military Guidelines for Reverse
Engineering are implemented in the development of EDEL products.
EDEL has structured its facilities,
equipment and personnel to meet the challenges of reverse engineering
by building a team of engineers with a variety of disciplines and
specialty equipment to assist in deciphering and characterizing
sensors, electronic signals, and electromagnetic radiation and shielding.
We employ scientific methods as diverse as spectrochemical analysis
for material identification, radiographic inspection for hidden
surfaces, and an electron microscope for X40K magnification to measure
grain flow direction of metallic surfaces.
