C4ISR Systems - Developing Key Components

Maintaining our technological edge in C4ISR is vital, whether we’re designing systems that sustain situational awareness and intelligence on the battlefield or developing key components for the surveillance framework of border patrol agents. At Benchmark, we excel at delivering advanced C4ISR systems, enabling our customers to offer systems that connect and inform across all mission domains. When it Matters, Benchmark is there.

We design display, imaging and communications systems integral to the operation and safety of technologically advanced systems. We can integrate multiple communications and data protocols,  including IP radio, intercom audio, Wi-Fi devices, or serial devices. We have experience building data bus and networking equipment with various system interfaces common in ground vehicle systems. Our extensive engineering expertise includes ruggedized systems, circuit board assemblies, audio and video systems and wireless communication devices. For every system we design, power management and power distribution is central to ensuring every solution remains operational until everyone is safely back to base.

Leveraging the resources of our RF High Speed Design Center of Innovation, Benchmark is a leader in the engineering and manufacturing of NextGen RF components critical in applications that secure communications, deter conflicts, protect troops and more efficiently deploy resources.

Our complete C4ISR capabilities include:

Weapons Systems - Certified & Ready to Support

Weapons controls and guidance systems must not fail. Benchmark’s expertise in communications technology enables high-performing military weapon systems. Benchmark Secure Technology engineers are experts in the designengineeringtest and manufacturing of tracking devices, navigation equipment, jammers, guidance and communication systems that meet strict size, weight and power (SwaP) requirements using miniaturized electronics. Benchmark Lark Technology's RF and High Speed Design Center of Innovation is a leader in the engineering and manufacturing of RF and other components critical in advanced munitions applications. Benchmark is a strategic partner providing ground, sea and air weapon technology. 

Soldier Systems - Specialized Manufacturing On the Battlefield

A military’s most critical assets are its soldiers. To excel on the battlefield, they need rugged, reliable tools that get the job done without distracting interfaces or complicated controls. Benchmark Secure Technology specializes in the design and manufacturing of low-power networks and rugged display systems which support the stringent specifications of our military customers. Our expertise in human-machine interface for use in high-pressure, fast-paced environments makes sure every system is designed around the end-user.

Power management and power distribution hubs are critical to the usability of any soldier-worn system and we have extensive experience designing systems that keep working until everyone is safely back to base.  Our extensive expertise integrating multiple communications and data protocols, including IP radio, intercom audio, Wi-Fi devices, or serial devices, allows us to design soldier-worn systems that fuse data into a format optimized for use by troops on the ground. We also leverage Benchmark’s global expertise in medical technology capabilities and RF design to integrate sensors into body-worn mesh networks and biometric devices.

Defense Avionics - More than 30 Years of Experience

Avionics is one of Benchmark’s tenured areas of expertise and our work in the defense industry is built on 30-plus years of knowledge. Benchmark has earned the trust of our defense customers with our high standard of excellence and reliability in designing and manufacturing digital displayscompute modules, networking equipment, power conditioners and communications systems for the most advanced aircraft in the world. All of our airborne systems are high-reliability and ruggedized to surpass aviation standards.

Our extensive background in RF technology allows us to specialize in the development and integration of NAV/COMM radios, navigation components (inertial and GPS) and radars, including electromechanical flight controls for all aircraft surfaces. The combination of our RF expertise with our precision manufacturing capabilities, allows us to design and manufacture components for a wide range of systems including cockpit displays, collision avoidance systems, aircraft sensors and products for the airframe and power plants of the modern aircraft.

Benchmark Secure Technology, Benchmark's defense systems division, designs and manufactures a wide range of systems including cockpit displays and processors, networking equipment, collision avoidance systems, aircraft sensors and products for the airframe and power plants of the modern aircraft. We can integrate multiple communications and data protocols into an aircraft,  including IP-based avionics, intercom audio, Wi-Fi devices and serial devices. We have experience building aviation data bus and networking equipment with various system interfaces, including MIL STD 1553 and ARINC 429, as well as commercial open standards such as 802.x Ethernet, fiber channel and RS-232/422/485, and video standards such as HDMI and SMPTE standards.
