Replace Obsolete Electrical Military Sensors

November 26, 2018

OSI measures electrical and electromagnetic properties in a variety of commercial, petrochemical and defense environments. We presently supply over 400 measurement devices to over 300 surface and sub-surface vessels, as well as multiple aircraft and land-based systems.

Military Obsolescence Mitigation & DMSMSUS Submarine

  • Adapt, extend, and develop electrical measurement technology
  • Match specific performance and footprint requirements of obsolete parts
  • OSI will take obsolete sensor specifications and custom design a cost effective solution
  • Rapid prototyping of circuit boards and enclosures for proof of concept designs in a matter of weeks

DMSMS (Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages) costs the federal government millions of dollars each year. The governments’ challenge is to locate sources to reverse engineer or re-design a system to keep planes and vessels in service.

Application examples include redesigned current sensor for circuit breakers in Naval Vessels and replacing an obsolete LEM unit (CT 0.4-P) 400mA, board mounted unit, for military vehicles.
