Electronics Engineering

MERC electronics engineers and technicians have many years of experience in the design, development, prototyping, and fielding of complex commercial and military electrical, electronic and avionics systems and subsystems. Using proven SEI certified CMMI maturity level 3 engineering practices, our engineers produce the solutions you require and deliver all supporting documentation upon project completion.

C-17/C-5 Radome Test Station C-5 Fuel Quantity Totalizer (FQT) C-5 Hub Force Sensor (HFS)

The primary focus of our work is re-engineering complex electronic and avionics systems to sustain the continued fully functional use of aging aircraft plus supporting or providing the specialized automated test equipment for old and new systems alike.

MERC engineers have system-level experience with a number of key systems, like the ALE-47, ALQ-161, ALQ-131, ALR-69, and ALR-69A. This experience enables MERC to develop specialized automated test equipment which allows our customers to sustain these critical systems. In addition, MERC engineers can support the development of Test Program Sets (TPS) for modern, common testers like VDATS.

The re-engineering of aging electrical, electronic and avionics components, subsystems and systems is an important part of maintaining an aging fleet of aircraft, vehicles, and support equipment. As a non-profit organization, MERC does not do manufacturing work; neither do we retain data rights over the items we design or re-engineer. We gladly provide all data to the customer so that our engineered devices may be procured at the most competitive prices.
