Special Projects

The majority of CAL-AV's efforts are applied to special projects; that is, design, development, and/or fabrication of electronics to fill a client's needs. Our resources include associates that are at the top of their respective fields.

Our clients enjoy the benefits of depth and breadth in engineering knowledge, supported by many years of experience. Because of that experience, the cost of many developments, even one-off projects, are often less than one might expect.

More and more, because of staff reduction, or a company's desire to stay focused on its core area of expertise, many of our clients are finding that it makes sense to move certain projects into organizations such as ours.  CAL-AV's clients and customers are typically research labs and operational users from government, industry, and universities.

The scope of our capabilities may best be appreciated by reviewing the following partial list of past design/fabrication contracts:

  • Magnetic sensors for (rail gun) NSWC, BAE Systems, NRL, Gen-Atomics
  • Telemetry based real-time data acquisition system - U.S. Army
