The system idea in the direction of 19″ equipment rack technology as well as matrix-controlled devices was to reduce the space that individual devices and their cabling sometimes require to a minimum and at the same time centralise control of the devices.
Founding of AEROMARITIME Systembau GmbH, headquartered at Kirchenstraße 12 in Munich. Distribution (import and export) of US American electronic components. At the same time development of a radio matrix (Manual Switching Matrix) for radio communications systems with 20 employees.
Completion of an IFF system development with subsequent integration into Class 206 submarines. Market introduction of VHF/UHF/IFF multi-range antennas for submarines. Relocation to Moosacherstr. 51 in Munich. Founding of the AEROMARITIME representation in Paris. The number of employees increased to 50.
Growing market for internal / external radio communication systems with relay switching and electronic control. The high demand required relocation to Hanauerstr.105 in Munich. Extension of the product portfolio by market entry into communication systems for telephone monitoring shelters (mobile land stations).
Further development of integrated communication systems and system control to ASYM 3000A with ISDN/Digital Speech technology, which required creating a software development department in Chemnitz.
Expansion of the radio control systems functionality to “Service Oriented Network” of the Advanced Platform Communication System APCOS 4000. Move to own building in the Munich-Neufahrn industrial park. Functionality extension of the multi-C. Increasing sales figures led to market leadership for submarine antennas.
Integration of APCOS 4000 systems in various vessel classes such as destroyers, frigates and fast patrol boats of several NATO countries. High workload due to increasing orders resulted in headcount increase to 120 employees. In addition, a further branch office was established in Dubai for market expansion and customer support.
Delivery of Communication Systems for twenty-five Gannatha Class Boats and additional three Falaj and Abu Dhabi class ships for United Arabic Emirates navy.
Delivery of the first of four communications systems for the German Navy’s F125 frigate program.
Completion of system integration of the fourth communications system on the F125 frigate program planned by year-end. 50th company anniversary.
The use of integrated systems technology is now common worldwide due to the limited space available in surface ships and especially in naval submarines.
“From the very beginning, the team spirit, the optimism of the employees and the mental freedom to create something new (can-do mentality) were the driving forces behind the 50-year success story that continues to this day. In the international business environment at that time, finding solutions together with the end customer directly was the key to success.”
