The Military market place centers on defense applications. Examples include broadband radios for communications, guidance for "smart" weapons, radar systems, and electronic countermeasures systems.
Most military systems require the use of product that has been through stringent testing to ensure long life and reliable performance: so-called Hi-Rel screened products. Devices that go into environments that are not easily accessible for repair (satellites, underwater relays) also often require the use of Hi-Rel screened parts. While the Agilent Technologies product offering does not include screened versions of our products, the ceramic and gold/metal/hermetic packages we use are compatible with high rel screening available through outside contract services.
