Experts in custom power components

Working alongside Vanguards experienced engineers, the Wavelength team can help you to design and manufacture custom products which meet your requirements and specifications. We can help you design-in solutions which overcome your power challenges and provide your projects with the performance, sizes and mounting types needed. With complete control over Transfer packing (including moulded, open, encapsulated, hermetically sealed and fabricated cases from any material that is machinable) through to testing. 

Manufacturing, research and development, prototyping and lab analysis are all carried out from their headquarters in California. This is supported by an additional 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility located in Mexico. All of their facilities meet the highest defence and aerospace industry standards such as:

  • ITAR compliant
  • DLA authorised
  • MIL-PRF-27
  • AS9100 REV D
