Components for Demanding Space Applications

Gowanda has more than 50 years of experience designing and manufacturing engineered components for high performance applications. Our collaborative approach to address design and part configuration challenges ensures effective results. Success with military and defense applications are made possible by a commitment to the quality standards, testing and processing rigor required by that market; that success provided a solid foundation to expand and grow into space applications.

We have established flight history by being designed-in to several space programs, and we are now the preferred source for space level magnetics solutions for programs where off-the-shelf product will not meet the design requirement. This includes custom magnetics that are designed, produced and tested in accordance with MIL-STD-981 or EEE-INST-002 requirements.
