Applications and Types of PCBs for Military and Defense Industry

The military has always harnessed cutting-edge technology to run successful campaigns and protect our shores. Since the 20th century, that technology has included top-of-the-line military and defense printed circuit boards.


Printed circuit boards for military and defense are often held to a higher standard than ordinary printed circuit boards because their role is so crucial, and they will be subjected to such harsh conditions. Military grade PCBs are the toughest, most efficient and most reliable printed circuit boards on the market.

Applications and Types of PCBs for Military and Defense

Military and defense PCBs can include printed circuit boards for naval operations, aviation, general defense and even space applications. Because military printed circuit board applications are so varied, it's important to have access to a variety of PCB types so that you can be sure your military and defense PCBs will be appropriate for the electronics that use them.


Applications that use military PCBs can include:
• Power supplies for the AWACS-Airborne Warning and Control System — the "Eye in the Sky"
• Auxiliary power units for radar control systems
• Radio communications systems
• Control tower systems
• LED lighting systems
• Firearms and explosives testing equipment
• Underwater navigation systems
• Jet instrumentation
• Jamming systems
• Electronic countermeasures
• And many more


These military printed circuit boards will often be subjected to high pressures and stresses, meaning they will frequently require high-temperature substrates like temperature-resistant laminates, copper or aluminum. Military PCB manufacturers must produce PCBs that will resist heat-induced oxidation and effectively dissipate heat in a low-weight design.
