More Info on Aethercomm

Aethercomm has a 20-year legacy of designing and developing high-power amplifiers, switches, and more hardware for airborne platforms. Our airborne heritage includes Radar, Electronic Warfare and Communications from DC to 40+ GHz. We have delivered tens of thousands of complex RF power modules employed on fighter and attack aircraft, and our hardware can be found on every fighter jet except the F22. Our RF amplifiers and high power switches are on most US Army and USMC helicopters, and our hardware is deployed on over 40 UAVs and in missiles. Our airborne hardware is combat proven and thrives in the harshest environments on earth.
