For over 40 years Elma has been a supplier of field-proven MIL-STD integrated systems, boards and components for mission-critical defense applications across all military branches.

Elma delivers field-proven open standards-based computing solutions for mission-critical applications used in land, air and sea defense systems.

We know what "mission-critical" means. For over 35 years, Elma has been a supplier of field-proven rugged enclosures, integrated assemblies, boards, and components for mission-critical defense applications across all service branches. We guarantee maximum performance even under the most challenging circumstances.

Elma competence lies in designing and delivering hardware platforms based on modular COTS open standards. Along with our carefully selected partners, we deliver a tailored solution based on our customers’ requirement for a lower cost, long lifecycle and maintenance support. We are the leading experts in the latest open standards architectures such as SOSA, OpenVPX, and CPCI Serial, as well as mature standards such as VME, CPCI, and PCI. Using these building blocks ensures a higher level of interoperability and tested technology.

Our deep experience in thermal and environmental management means that our customers are guaranteed a system that meets or exceeds the application’s requirements – be it high shock and vibration, extreme temperatures (-40 to +85 °C). Our familiarity with military standards means that Elma’s enclosures and embedded computing platforms are designed for use from benign to extremely harsh environments; MIL-STDs 901D, 810E-F, 167, 461, etc. are second nature to us, and our production facilities are certified to AS9100. Whether it’s dealing with stringent EMI concerns, high altitude or desert temperatures, or subjecting a system to Barge testing, we’ve been there.
