Fremont, Calif., October 2022 – Elma Electronic has received three awards in the Military & Aerospace Electronics 2022 Innovator Awards, one for each level of the competition.

“On behalf of the Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Elma Electronic on its Platinum, Gold and Silver-level honoree status,” said Military & Aerospace Electronics Editor in Chief John Keller. “This competitive program allows us to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the aerospace and defense community this year.”

Elma Electronic, noted, “As part our continued mission to bring best-in-class solutions to our customers, we work hard to remain on the cutting-edge of the industry’s technological needs. This latest recognition puts the daily efforts of our team in the spotlight, and we applaud the whole Elma family for their continued dedication to our customers and our industry.”

Earning the highest designation of platinum, Elma’s Short VPX payload test platform accelerates development and test of 3U boards intended to meet the Short VPX SFF initiative in development as part of the Modular Open Standards Approach (MOSA) open-systems standard. Short VPX uses OpenVPX backplanes, but shortens the length of the 3U and 6U boards. The platinum level celebrates products with superb innovation and a groundbreaking approach that meet a new level of performance.

As a Gold level honoree, Elma’s E18 family of price competitive, robust mechanical incremental encoders offers a high-quality alternative to system designers struggling to find a drop-in, rugged encoder for harsh environments with a footprint that matches their current PCB design. The gold level recognizes an excellent innovation with clear benefits that make substantial improvements over previous methods employed.

Rounding out the trifecta of awards at Silver, the rugged, SWaP-optimized NetSys-5312 delivers IP-based data, voice and video to mobile users in a range of mission-critical applications with fast, secure network performance at the edge using Cisco’s ESR-6300 Embedded Services Router and its Cisco-certified mobile IP routing protocols. Silver honorees exemplify very good innovation that resulted in marked improvement, not just incremental benefits.
