Eliminate risk

Safety. Performance. Reliability. Efficiency. These are the fundamental tenets of aerospace systems design – and they’re at the heart of our avionics products.

At Abaco Systems, we understand that mission critical applications simply can’t break. There can be no unplanned downtime. Size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints must also be overcome to meet the demand for smaller, lighter aircraft.


Broad and deep

Abaco Systems supports avionics designers with a broad and deep line of avionics interfaces, test platforms, tools and software that enable the development of modern military and commercial aircraft from small SWaP-constrained unmanned platforms to large commercial airliners.

MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, AFDX/ARINC 664 part 7 or multi-protocol – Abaco Systems has it all, with the broadest range of embedded avionics I/O protocols in the widest range of form factors in the industry.



Custom solutions

Our expertise and experience doesn’t just apply to our off-the-shelf products. If you need something different – something non-standard – we can help. Just contact our avionics experts to learn how we have developed flexible and unique solutions for our customers.

Rugged: from development, test and simulation through to deployment

Our avionics I/O products are offered in a range of ruggedness levels, making them cost-effective for benign environments such as labs and test facilities – or, alternatively, giving them the robust reliability necessary for challenging deployments in commercial and military aircraft. Meanwhile, a suite of software tools and APIs accelerates the design to deployment cycle, while reducing risk and complexity.


In it for the long haul

We recognize that you and your customers expect support from initial design through to final decommissioning. In response, we have put in place the industry’s most advanced, most sophisticated and most flexible programs to support the extended lifecycles typical of the aerospace industry.

Those programs include, for example, Product Lifecycle Management and Configuration Control to maximize the cost-effective lifetime of platforms in service.


Not just products

We understand it’s not just about the technology, the expertise or the experience in the aerospace industry. At Abaco Systems, we have a customer-centric infrastructure designed to support you through all aspects of a program, from design to delivery. Our customers value, for example, what we bring in terms of helping navigate through the minefield that is export control.

Much more than avionics

To reduce development time and risk, minimize time-to-market and maximize competitive advantage, you can leverage our COTS Rugged Systems portfolio to develop systems ranging from mission computers to ISR subsystems. These systems can optionally be pre-tested and pre-qualified with avionics interfaces, bringing the benefits of our COTS Rugged Systems to aerospace systems developers.
