Military & Aerospace Power Supplies

At Artesyn Embedded Technologies, our engineers have been designing and developing power supply products for the military and aerospace markets for over 35 years. Our products have helped pave the way for advancements in a wide variety of military and aerospace applications, including ground-based, ship-based and mobile communications systems, and commercial in-flight entertainment systems.


  • The global military electronics market is worth about $77 billion a year.
  • The global military avionics market is worth about $13.5 billion per year.
  • The global aerospace and commercial avionics electronics market is worth about $49 billion a year.
  • The use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment and systems in military applications continues to increase.

Many of the AC-DC power supplies and DC-DC converters that are produced for military and aerospace applications are customized products, often involving special ruggedization and characterization. However, the growing use of COTS equipment for military and aerospace applications means that some of our standard products may also prove suitable, depending upon the precise requirements of the application, and the degree of certification that is required. The key attribute of power supplies for military and aerospace applications is usually reliability – especially in environments involving extended operating temperature ranges and/or extreme shock and vibration. So, robust design and ruggedization are important, and usually ingress protection and DIN rail mounting. Other important power supply attributes are high efficiency and small form factors.
