EDL…the future by design.


“Our company is a small business research organization that develops innovative antennas and systems primarily for military and government applications. Being a small company in the Hampton Roads Area, we needed a manufacturing company that is both capable and willing to support small R/D companies to advance their ideas and products from engineering development models to prototype levels and beyond. It was outstanding to find such a company (EDL) in our own “backyard.” EDL reviewed our circuit designs, supported the development of our research models, fabricated the metal work, PCB assemblies, and cable harnesses; and even assisted in the briefings with our sponsor. We will always consider using EDL to help us transition our research models to actual products for commercial applications.”
