Simply put, we exist to serve the soldier, whether to enable or defend him and our nation.


IDSI is recognized as a leader in providing rugged and reliable custom RF solutions to the warfighter. Our highly experienced design engineers can & have fielded tactical radio and electronic warfare amplifiers in frequency ranges between 2 Mhz – 10 GHz at power levels from 1 – 300 Watts. Carrying forward the legacy and traditions of market-leading products with expertise in Gallium Nitride (GaN), Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), Laterally Diffused Metal Oxide Semiconductor (LDMOS) and bipolar designs, IDSI has successfully addressed requirements for customer programs which include:

  • Demanding Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) requirements and limitations
  • Man-portable, ground vehicular, airborne and maritime environmental requirements
  • Excessive ballistic shock and G-force requirements
  • Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), and Near Strike Lightning (NSL) requirements
  • Power conditioning and filtering
  • Hermetic sealing requirements
  • Radio-agnostic (RF input sensing) providing amplifier band-switching and operation requirements
  • Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)
  • Requirements verification and qualification to MIL-STD-810 and numerous other MIL standards
