U.S. Navy airborne weapons experts are working with three electronics distributors to provide a variety of electronic components for air-to-ground weapons development.

Officials of the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division at China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station in Ridgecrest, Calif., announced contracts collectively worth as much as $9.8 million for high-reliability electronics parts to three electronics distributors: Laguna Components Inc. in Laguna Beach, Calif.; LC Engineers Inc. in Rahway, N.J.; and Pacific IC Source in Yucaipa, Calif.

The electronics distributors will compete for orders over the next five years for a variety of electronic components that include integrated circuits, resistors, capacitors, connectors, wire, diodes, flex circuits, switches, back shells, sleeving, encoders, transistors, power supplies, flash chips, potentiometers, radios, electronic subassemblies, receivers, semiconductors, plugs, Global Positioning System (GPS) components, terminal blocks, antennas, inertial measurement units, fuses, relays, transducers, switches, power cables, receptacles, oscilloscopes, and drying cabinets.

These distributors handle parts built by companies like Glenair, Mini-Circuits, Miteq, Omnetics, Teledyne Cougar, Emerson, Carolina Microwave, Microhard Systems, Frankfurt Laser Co., and Evolution Interconnect Systems.

The three distributors will do the work on this contract at their facilities in Laguna Beach, Calif.; Rahway, N.J.; and Yucaipa, Calif., and should be finished by November 2021.
