Business Editors/High-Tech Writers


Aeroflex Incorporated (Nasdaq Symbol: ARXX), a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of automated testing solutions and microelectronics for the aerospace, defense and broadband communications markets, today announced the successful achievement of formal AS 9100, Revision "A" certification for its Plainview, New York Microelectronics Solutions and Test Solutions divisions and its Hauppauge, New York Motion Control Systems division by the accreditation firm, EAGLE Registrations Inc. AS 9100 certification is additional to the ISO 9001:2000 certifications held by these divisions. To date, approximately 1,000 companies worldwide have achieved AS 9100 certification.

AS 9100 is the Aerospace Model for Quality Assurance in Design, Development, Production, Installation and Servicing and is intended to achieve significant improvements in quality and reductions in cost throughout the value stream or supply chain. AS 9100 was developed by the American Aerospace Quality Group (AAQG) and the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) turned it into an international standard. Members of AAQG and IAQG come from the largest aerospace companies in the world (e.g., Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, etc.) and development of the standard included aerospace industry representatives from the Americas, Europe and Asia. AS 9100 is supported by many of the world's leading aerospace organizations including Rolls Royce Allison, General Electric Aircraft Engines and NASA. The standard contains requirements that aim to assure superior quality of products and enhancement of customer satisfaction. It contains 83 additional requirements added to those in ISO 9001:2000. It was developed using ISO 9001, AS 9000 and EN 9000-1 and builds upon these requirements to develop a globally acceptable standard for aerospace companies in the civil and military aviation and aerospace sectors. It is technically equivalent to AECMA's EN 9100 for European aerospace suppliers.
