Frequency’s Mission Statement: “Our mission is to provide precision time and low phase noise frequency generation systems from 1 Hz to 46 GHz, for space and other challenging environments.”
Frequency Electronics, Inc. (FEI) was founded in 1961 and is headquartered at Mitchel Field, New York.
FEI is a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of high precision timing, and frequency control products for space, air, sea and terrestrial applications. FEI’s products are used in satellite payloads and in other commercial, government and military systems including C4ISR, electronic warfare (EW), missiles, UAVs, aircraft, GPS, secure communications, energy exploration and wireline and wireless communication networks.
FEI has received over 100 awards for technical excellence for products delivered on various government and commercial. The longest operating frequency source (44 years) in space (Voyager 2) is an FEI product and a variety of our systems have visited every planet in our solar system. Currently, FEI provides precision timing and frequency sources for satellites in High/Geostationary, Medium and Low Earth Orbits.
FEI has a unique legacy of providing master timing systems, power converters, and frequency synthesis and distribution systems. We are currently developing next-generation atomic clocks and low G-sensitive oscillators for both space and terrestrial applications. These products are applicable for both commercial and U.S. Government end-use.
For the terrestrial secure communications and command and control market, FEI’s products support multiple C4ISR counter measures and EW applications for the U.S. Government on land, sea and air-borne platforms. Recently identified threats to the communication capabilities of U.S. Government facilities by jamming, and“spoofing” global positioning systems (“GPS”) signals may be mitigated by the Company’s technologies. In addition, similar types of threats to the public and enterprise networks have been identified by the Department of Homeland Security. FEI’s high precision, ruggedized clocks combined with specialized software provide a critical element enabling the thwarting of these communication and operational security issues.
FEI-Zyfer, located in California, designs, develops, and manufactures products for precision time, and frequency generation and synchronization primarily incorporating global positioning system (GPS) technologies for fixed wing and rotary aircraft, terrestrial communications systems, computer networks, test equipment, and military SATCOM terminals. FEI-Zyfer products have applications for commercial and government satellite payloads, as well as, secure communications, C5ISR systems, electronic counter-measures and electronic warfare on land, sea, and air-borne platforms.
FEI-Elcom designs and manufactures Radio Frequency (“RF”) microwave modules, devices and subsystems up to 46 GHz including fast switching, ultra-low phase noise synthesizers, up-down converters, receivers, tuners, ceramic resonant oscillators and dielectric resonant oscillators. These instruments and components are mission critical for multiple applications in the EW market, including SATCOM communication, surveillance, signals intelligence (COMINT, MASINT and ELINT), threat simulation, electronic attack (“EA”) and electronic prevention (“EP”) systems.
FEI-Elcom signal generation and signal conversion products are deployed around the world in airborne, seaborne and rugged terrestrial environments. Its synthesizer, converter and receiver installations serve UAV, rotary wing and fixed wing missions in the United States, and abroad. Product design includes VME and VPX designs.
