FMT originated out of the Raytheon SMDO group. With our origins as a company so closely intertwined with the development of radar technology, it is no wonder we retain such close ties with national security agencies, air traffic controllers, defense contractors, and weather radar technicians.
Air Traffic Control
Air traffic control (ATC) radar devices by FMT are used to secure, monitor, and manage civil, commercial, and military air traffic. Typically, these systems determine aircraft location by continuously monitoring and tracking the sky at any one time. In critical applications, FMT delivers dependable waveguide components in settings where failure simply isn’t an option.
Defense & Military
Ferrite Microwave Technologies builds mission specific RF and microwave components, while providing rigorous quality control to ensure ultra-reliability, maximum durability, and low maintenance. Since our beginnings, we have long supported military and defense radars – whether on ground, naval, or air-based with a multitude of high power components.
We provide technical product solutions for today’s weather radar applications in the areas of high power waveguide components and integrated assemblies. As a testament to the value of our microwave design engineering and test expertise, FMT has supplied integrated assemblies and RF pallets to several weather surveillance radar (WSR) system integrators.
Ferrite Microwave Technologies has a longstanding history of supplying a wide variety of high-power devices and sub-assemblies to many of the world’s leading universities and laboratories. Our team works directly with scientists, physicists, and project managers to help them navigate the demanding nature of their research. During equipment upgrades, facility expansions, and project developments, we ensure our components exceed our clients expectations.
Medical Oncology (CLINAC)
FMT is the world’s leading supplier of high-power microwave devices used in clinical medical linear accelerators for radiation oncology. As the technology and research advances for the practice, so too does our commitment for providing designs capable of satisfying the latest medical requirements.
