LCR Embedded Systems is a leading developer of integrated systems, chassis and backplanes for military aircraft, vehicles and systems operating in all domains. With over 35 years of experience in supporting US Department of Defense and international allied programs as well as commercial clients, we provide military- and aerospace-grade custom and COTS solutions that ensure success in the most demanding of environments.

Our embedded electronic products are designed to equip mission-critical platforms with the very best that the SOSA and VPX board architectures have to offer. We are a member of VITA and the Sensor Open Systems Architecture Consortium, and are committed to pushing the boundaries of state-of-the-art defense electronics design.

Cutting-edge design, manufacturing and test capabilities

Our team of industry veterans brings a wealth of knowledge to the design of our mission-critical products, with decades of experience in packaging, signal flow analysis, power envelope, thermal management, I/O and more. We make use of a wide variety of state-of-the-art design tools including 3D CAD modelling software, thermal and structural analysis, and 3D printing.

We operate an advanced manufacturing facility, based in the US, that features a full suite of assembly, manufacturing, integration, and testing capabilities and is staffed by highly trained and experienced personnel. We test to MIL-STD requirements as standard to ensure the utmost in performance under the harshest of battlefield conditions. Tests include:

  • Vibration: MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-167-1 (shipboard)
  • Shock: MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-901 (shipboard)
  • EMI: MIL-STD-461 – Conducted and Radiated
  • Temperature: MIL-STD-810

Integrated Systems

Our integrated systems address a full range of operational requirements for military C5ISR, including radar, SIGINT (signals intelligence), EW (electronic warfare) and mission computing. The rugged conduction-cooled units are provided with best-in-class partner payload sets, and allow you to begin integrating your mission-specific hardware and software right out of the box.
