Artemis Electronics earns AS9100C Certification

Artemis Electronics announces today that its Prospect, Kentucky facility has received certification under the AS9100C aerospace and defense quality system standard. The quality audit was conducted by QMI-SAI Global, an independent third-party registrar.

The scope of Artemis’ certification has been modified to reflect the expansion of the company’s operations into the production and repair of EAPUs and smoke generator engines. Artemis’ new scope of certification is for “the design, development, manufacturing, testing, inspection, and servicing of electronic systems, assemblies, power distribution units, power supplies and assemblies, auxiliary power units, control systems, smoke generator engines, and the provision of electronic systems engineering and integration capabilities.”

As part of its AS9100C certification, Artemis has also been recertified to the latest ISO9001:2008 standard, a certification Artemis held prior to the recent audit. Artemis’ AS9100C certification was the culmination of a lengthy audit process, which included both a Stage I and Stage II audit.

Certification is Milestone for Company

Artemis believes that the certification will provide customers with quality assurance and also open new business opportunities for the company.

“This certification will provide our customers and potential customers with confidence in the quality management aspects of our operations. Artemis has always been dedicated to providing our customers with innovative, high-quality product solutions and have sought to continually improve our quality processes and performance” said Dean Dickinson, CEO of Artemis Electronics.

Dickinson added, “The AS9100C standard is the industry benchmark of quality. By achieving this certification, Artemis shows that it has renewed its focus on quality and is dedicated ever to customer satisfaction.”

Taylor Gerlach, Artemis’ Legal Counsel and Compliance Manager, added “One unique aspect of the AS9100C is that the quality standard specifically applies to the aerospace and defense industry. This shows that Artemis’ quality processes are specifically tailored to meet the higher standards of the aerospace and defense industry. We are certainly proud of this accomplishment.”

Artemis Electronics Completes Acquisition Of EAPU And Smoke Generator Technical Data From Walker Power Systems

Artemis Electronics, LLC, based in Prospect, Kentucky, announces today that it has completed its acquisition of certain assets of Walker Power Systems, Inc. (WPS), a privately held Arizona corporation and manufacturer of auxiliary power systems and turbine engines for the U.S. military and its allies worldwide.

Assets Transferred

Under the terms of the agreement, Artemis has acquired the intellectual property, technical data and production capability for several of WPS’s product lines, including the 2kW External Auxiliary Power Units (EAPUs) (NSN: 6115-01-572-3430), 3kW EAPUs (NSN: 6115-01-488-7433), and TT-40 M56/M58 Turbine Powered Smoke Generator Engines (NSN: 2835-01-424-3924). In addition, Artemis acquired a number of physical units of 2kW EAPUs, 3kW EAPUs, Smoke Generator Engines, and a variety of spare parts, inventory and testing equipment previously owned by WPS. No contracts or liabilities were assumed by Artemis through the transaction.

Part of the Artemis Growth Strategy

Artemis Electronics intends to use the acquired intellectual property to expand the company’s production capabilities. In the past Artemis has repaired EAPUs as a subcontractor for the military. Dean Dickinson, Founder and CEO of Artemis Electronics, noted, “This expansion into the production of EAPUs is in line with our strategy to grow our business. Our familiarity with the units combined with this acquisition allows for us to continue a product offering that has played an important role in keeping M1A1 tanks in operation.”

The acquisition provides Artemis with the potential to become a primary source of EAPUs and smoke generator engines over the next few years. Dickinson also said he believes the acquisition presents many opportunities for engineering to ensure that the product offering remains compatible with modern technology.

About the Products

The 2kW and 3kW External Auxiliary Power Units (EAPUs) were developed as a response to an identified need to enhance the M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank effectiveness. Each EAPU is specifically designed to provide auxiliary electrical power during periods of silent watch and to provide main battery charging. Use of the EAPUs allows for the minimization of main engine operating time as well as the provision of a backup source of power to the main batteries.

The TT-40 gas turbine engine and electronic control unit (ECU) is an integral part of the US Army’s M56 and XM58 Smoke Generator System program. The M56 smoke generator system provides coverage for large areas and provides both visual and infrared wavelength obstruction. As part of the smoke generator system, the TT-40 engine provides power with controlled bleed air and controlled exhaust temperature to disseminate obscurants.

Artemis Electronics Receives EASA Part-145 Certification

PROSPECT, KY – July 23, 2014 – Avionics repair and overhaul services provider Artemis Electronics recently received certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as a Part-145 Repair Station. EASA, which regulates civil aviation safety in a manner similar to the United States’ FAA, has entered into bilateral agreements by which EASA and the FAA mutually recognize standards imposed by each regulatory authority. This certification essentially broadens the territory of which Artemis Electronics’ FAA part-145 repair station status applies.  Artemis received the part-145 repair station status in 2005.

The EASA Part-145 certification will allow Artemis to provide support and Form 8130-3 Dual Release (EASA/FAA) on all repair services completed for parts contained within Artemis’s repair station capabilities. This will help to grow Artemis’s business, as many existing customers require the EASA certification in order to do business with the entities’ European operations.

CEO and founder Dean Dickinson noted: “One guiding principle of Artemis Electronics is that the company is committed to providing repair solutions in accordance with the highest quality and safety standards. By achieving certification as an EASA part-145 repair station, Artemis has once again demonstrated its pledge to conduct its work in accordance with the highest safety standards.” Dickinson added that “this EASA certification will allow Artemis to provide repair support within our capabilities for European registered aircraft. We expect that this certification will lead to new business opportunities as our presence in the European market continues to grow.”
