History and Program: C. Plath GmbH, Nautisch-Elektronische Technik, Hamburg, was founded in 1954. It is majority owned by Atlas Bremen; the other shareholders are Litton Systems and Jurgen Wachtler, who acts as managing director. The company is well known all over the world as a DF manufacturer. Since the first visual radio direction finders were approved for marine navigation, 130 Plath experts have often given fresh impetus to progress in EW as well. Several coasts have been fitted with Plath marine emergency direction finder networks to protect human lives.
NATO countries are equipped with automated radio reconnaissance systems. Deliveries to post and security organizations have led to international recognition by DF users.
Watson-Watt Principle: As to EW requirements, Plath has decided to adhere to the multichannel Watson-Watt principle for both mobile and fixed operation. This principle has given excellent proof of its value for short-time direction finding and locating weak signals. The three-channel compact direction finder SFP 5200 matches today's general requirement for automatic operation and single-site location. For the purpose of monitoring frequency hoppers, DF receivers based on the Fast Fourier principle are provided.
Real-Time Broadband DF Receiver: The DFP 5300, as the latest generation of DF receivers. not only provides reliable detection of transmitters which use modern radio techniques -- including burst mode, frequency hopping and spread spectrum -- but also expands into a new dimension with a higher quality level for the display and evaluation of conventional transmissions.
Non-Military Activities: According to company policy adopted by C. Plath GmbH, conscious efforts are being made all the time to safeguard the civil "leg" of the company by producing equipment for merchant vessels. These efforts have produced highly useful effects in the quest for economic solutions in the military development field.

Ceramic Devices, Inc. (CDI) was founded in San Diego in 1982 to provide filtering solutions to electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems which plague manufacturers of high-performance, high-reliability electronic systems.
EMI is an intermittent or continuous noise which is radiated or conducted into or out of electronic equipment, disrupting the normal operation of electronic systems. Sources of EMI include broadcast transmitters, motors, power supplies and microwave devices. High-frequency EMI is often catastrophically disruptive to sensitive electronic circuits, and the characteristics of this noise seldom can be predicted for the system's operating environment.
Elimination of these undesirable signals is usually accomplished during field testing of the system, and hence, solutions require creativity under extreme time constraints. Designing EMI-free circuit housings, including access and egress for "pure" signal and power lines in military and aerospace electronic systems, is usually accomplished using combinations of discoidal multilayer ceramic capacitors and ferrite inductors in a filter assembly.
CDI, led by Ivan G. Sarda (who is recognized as an authority of EMI filtering after 25 years of experience in the industry), is adept at designing EMI filters for electronic circuits operating in hostile EMI environments. The company is a small, military-qualified business whose growth has been accomplished by quickly providing innovative solutions to EMI problems encountered by military and aerospace users. A fully integrated filter manufacturer, CDI fabricates the highest quality discoidal multilayer capacitors. High-volume manufacturing of complex multicomponent filters to meet specifications, and subjecting these assemblies to testing and burn-in requirements are routine at CDI.

MATRIX SYSTEMS CORP., 5177 North Douglas Fir Rd., Calabasas, CA 91302, Phone: (818) 222-2301, Fax: (818) 222-2304
Chief Executive and AOC Contact: Jack Singleton, president Matrix Systems is a California corporation founded in 1969 to answer the need for reliable and modular switching products to serve the communications, automatic test equipment and television industries. Matrix's first product was a unique compact coaxial switch module which is still in production today. The success of that first product pointed the way to the entire line of modular matrices and computer controlled switching devices.
A cornerstone of the Matrix philosophy has been the company's dedication to its products, and as a result, a large part of the operating revenues are continuously reinvested in development of new products and in product improvement.
Initially, all sales were made directly from the factory, but with the growing popularity of the Matrix product family, a network of sales representatives was appointed to better serve local markets. Today there are sales reps or offices in 43 of the United States and in 15 other countries around the world.
In any successful company, it's the contribution of each individual employee which makes the success possible. Nowhere is that principle more true than at Matrix. The staff of more than 45 encompasses the professional and skilled disciplines necessary to produce consistently high-quality products. Yet the relatively small size of the Matrix organization allows close working relationships between departments and effective interoffice communications, all of which helps ensure a continued high caliber of customer service and support.
The modern Matrix facilities are located approximately 45 minutes northwest of Los Angeles International Airport in the rapidly developing community of Calabasas, CA. Planned to serve present and future needs, the 14,000-sq-ft concrete tilt-up building is company-owned.
Precision and semi-automatic equipment is used for in-house manufacture of critical components and subassemblies, resulting in a high level of product quality control and in dependable delivery quotations.
The engineering laboratories and manufacturing areas are in close proximity so that custom designs and special requirements can be implemented efficiently. Circular flow of product through the manufacturing area maximizes throughput while permitting centralized production control. At Matrix, we've tried to design our facilities with the same care we use in designing our products.
The Matrix product range covers applications from audio switching systems to complex computer controlled arrays for switching ultra high frequency signals. Switchpoint controllers have capacities to manage up to 3,200 switchpoints, and systems can be constructed to handle nearly any conceivable switching requirement.
In addition to the broad line of standard off-the-shelf switching systems, Matrix specializes in custom configurations for OEM applications. Matrix insists on a high standard of quality for all its products, and each product is designed to operate comfortably in the most severe industrial environments. The design goal of modularity and expandability is evident in all Matrix systems, and easy maintenance access is also part of the package.
The applications for Matrix products are as varied as the list of Matrix customers, which includes many well known aerospace companies, defense contractors, broadcast and telephone companies, and other high technology and communications firms.
We hope that you too will call on Matrix' capabilities for your switching equipment requirements. We'll give your requirements the same attention and care that have helped us earn thousands of satisfied customers over the years.

The engineering staff consists of an integrated mix of mechanical, electrical and composite engineers specializing in RF analysis, design and development of high power antennas and radomes for advanced weapon systems.
Once a product is developed using the CAD/CAM system, production specifications can be input as data to Nurad's computer-controlled lathes and milling machines to ensure the production run is identical to the prototypes.
Before any materials have been fabricated, Nurad's Drafting Department uses 3-D solid modeling to simulate complete assemblies. The Drafting Department is capable of generating complex mechanical electromechanical drawings, technical illustrations, graphic art designs and 2D/3D computer-aided design and development drawings.
Testing capabilities of Nurad's antennas consist of an indoor area and an outdoor antenna range. The indoor test area has six chambers capable of simultaneous operation. Pattern and VSWR measurements are accurately documented using Vector network analyzers as well as two Wiltron Scaler Network Analyzers. The outdoor antenna range can test dish antennas up to 10 ft in diameter with weights up to 5,000 lbs. Range lengths are 250 ft and 350 ft.
Complex and close tolerances are required for the effective electrical operation of Nurad's products. The Machine Shop has a proven ability to meet these requirements using CNC lathes and mills in both an automated machining area and a fully equipped manual Machine Shop, which is used for secondary operations and fixturing for the CNCs.
Composite materials used in radome manufacturing has been instrumental in supporting the design parameters of the microwave communications industry, both military and commercial. Through in-house research and development, intricate custom-designed aerospace antenna/radome systems challenge composite manufacturing to new capabilities.

In the past year, we have expanded into two-way, low-power, RF remote control links for commercial users.
Through arrangements that we have with other small businesses, we can provide a team effort to solve almost any RF or microwave problem, including RF hardware-computer integration and RF hardware-software integration.
Some of our recent accomplishments are:
* Achieved a 15-dB dynamic range improvement in an airborne radar receiver.
* Designed and provided prototype construction of receivers and transmitters for several low-power RF links.
* Published the section on weather radar in the Polarimetric Handbook. This section is a cookbook approach to polarimetric radar construction.
* Performed systems analysis, including link analysis, for many ESM and ADF receivers.
* Constructed a meteor-burst communications Yagi antenna array.
* Developed a receiver analysis program that provides the cascade results of 12 parameters. The program is the first to perform cascade 1-dB compression point and dynamic range.
