Ceramics for Aerospace & Defense

The demands of aerospace and defense systems require the high temperature, electrical and wear performance of advanced ceramics. STC supplies components for a range of turbine sensor and igniter systems, high power connectors, insulators for rocket and missile systems, optical components, armor, RF windows and wear components for braking systems.

We service most major government labs, OEMs and system suppliers with custom material lots, special and controlled processes (including dedicated facilities) as well as development programs for new and advanced components. Our services include prototyping, materials design consulting, prototype production and volume manufacturing.

STC maintains both AS 9100 and ISO 9001 certifications as well as ITAR Supplier compliance.
