Argon Corporation Now Fully MH-60S (AMCM) Qualified for our ARD19

ARD19, Lockheed Martin

Alpharetta, Georgia – Argon Corporation, designing and manufacturing Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) rugged display monitors and computers, is pleased to announce that our ARD19 rugged display has successfully passed all qualification testing, including environmental, EMI, Electrical/ESD and NVIS Compliance, in support of the U.S. Navy end user for the MH60S Airborne Mine Counter Measures (AMCM) mission. The ARD19 is now an MH-60 qualified unit.

This application required a very specific set of mounting and functional requirements, which Argon demonstrated we could meet. The Argon solution was based on a similar product, the ARD20, 20.1” rugged display, which had completed a full suite of Environmental and Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) qualification testing for other airborne applications. Leveraging off this experience, Argon was able to successfully demonstrate a design which passed the extreme requirements, particularly vibration, of this rotary wing platform.

Comments Mike Forde, Chief Operating Officer Argon, “This unit will provide not only Lockheed Martin, but all of our customers, with qualified rugged Command & Control (C&C) units for some of the toughest environments that the military market has to offer. This design will serve the market for years to come. We appreciate the opportunity that Lockheed Martin has provided Argon to support such a critical program, and application. We look forward to our continued good working relationship.”

Argon Alpharetta Moving to New Location

Alpharetta, Georgia – Argon Corporation is pleased to announce that we have completed construction of our new facility in Alpharetta, GA (a suburb of Atlanta, GA). We moved into our current facility in May 2010 and have since out grown that space. Our new space is 45% larger, with more space that can be utilized for our operations. In addition we have constructed a 600ft2 clean room which will be certified to Class 10,000.

We believe that we have a facility which will carry the company operations forward for at least 5 more years, based on our current revenue trajectory.

In this facility we will house our Production Operations, QA management, Program Management and Sales and Marketing.
