Investing €1.5 million has allowed EADS Defence & Security to extend the clean-room capacity of its Microwave Factory at the Ulm location for the production of microwave modules.

Defence Electronics, an integrated activity of EADS Defence & Security, has invested €1.5 million to extend its skills and capacity for the production of high-frequency modules under clean-room conditions at its Microwave Factory (MWF) in Ulm, Germany. The MWF now has about 2000 m² of clean-room space available, and approximately 200 employees are working on the development and production of high-frequency and microwave modules that are intended, in particular, for the self-protection system of the Eurofighter combat aircraft or for the TerraSAR-X satellite radar. At the Ulm location, about 3000 employees are working on complex security electronics such as radars, digital radio systems, or jammers; 60% of the staff are engineers.
