Global supplier of total systems solutions


AMETEK Aerospace & Defense is a leading manufacturer of highly engineered and cost effective engine sensor suites, aircraft data management systems, cooling and ventilating systems, environmental control systems, and a variety of sub-assemblies to military and aerospace customers.

AMETEK will be exhibiting at this year’s Africa and Aerospace Defense exhibition when it returns to its traditional base bigger and better at AFB Waterkloof after six years.

AMETEK focuses mainly on the following areas:
1. Thermal Management Systems

AMETEK Aerospace & Defencse is a diversified, vertically integrated supplier of custom Thermal Management Systems. We provide the Thermal Management Solution whether the application requires active cooling (refrigerant based) or passive cooling, and whether the transfer loop is liquid or air. We serve customers with a “one stop” solution for all thermal management needs.
2. Thermal Management Components

From custom air movers, electrical heaters and heat exchangers to refrigerant-based cooling systems ranging from a few thousand BTU/Hr capacity up to larger, more complex 120,000 BTU/Hr (35kW) systems, we can provide the answer with a timely, cost-effective, and innovative approach that meet your solution.
3. Motion Technology

Precision Electro-Mechanical Actuators, Servo Components, Motors and Transducers: At Muirhead Aerospace we offer a Motion Technology package that is second to none in the Aerospace & Defense Industry. Building on our traditional role as a component supplier, we have spent recent years moving up the supply chain to sub-system level, to support our customers in their move to become ‘system integrators’.
4. Traxsys Input Product

Cursor Control Devices. With the ascendency of multifunction flat panel displays in vehicles, command and control centers and aircraft, users need reliable and rugged Cursor Control Device (CCD) to access and navigate through the myriad of information displayed. Muirhead Aerospace and its product line, Traxsys, are proud to be the leading supplier of high-reliability trackballs, joysticks and touch pads for interacting with defense and airborne display systems, and its equipment is found on the latest aircraft and naval ships.
