About North Atlantic Industries

About North Atlantic Industries

Founded in 1955, North Atlantic Industries, Inc. (NAI) is a leading independent provider of embedded electronic and computing systems for rugged defense, industrial, commercial, and aerospace applications. We accelerate our clients’ time-to-mission with a unique approach based on a Custom-On-Standard-Architecture™ (COSA®) that delivers the best of both worlds: custom solutions from standard Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components. For more than 50 years, companies like Boeing, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon have relied on NAI to meet the demanding requirements of a wide range of I/O and communication-centric applications with uncompromising quality, efficiency, and responsiveness. We have built a reputation by listening to our customers; understanding their needs; and designing, testing, and delivering board and system-level products for their most demanding air, land, and sea requirements.

NAI has a wide breadth of products, including Multifunction I/O Boards, Single Board Computers (SBCs), Rugged COTS Systems, and Rugged Power Supplies which can be combined with over 40 available, field-proven functions. All of our products are designed, manufactured and tested in-house at our state-of-the-art facility in Bohemia, New York.

President & CEO Explains NAI's Unique Approach

"It's about offering a smarter, faster, more efficient system design that requires complex I/O requirements - that's where we excel. Our architecture provides custom solutions that are highly configurable, self-standing subsytems with off-the-shelf efficiency."

- William Forman, President & CEO of North Atlantic Industries

"I am quite impressed with the NAI hardware. The 75ARM1 is quite powerful. Also, the ease with which one can configure and use the hardware is extraordinary."

- Becker Vosloo, Sr.Electronic Engineer, Incomar SA

"SSAI looked at numerous COTS solution sets, and NAI was the only vendor we found capable of meeting all the performance requirements with existing, proven equipment. The final flight test results of the new ECU/LWCP system exceeded the requirements and improved the overall accuracy of the Gunship, as well as the reliability and maintainability of the gun systems— resulting in real benefits to USAF war fighters."

- Cliff Driver, Vice President of Operations, SSAI

“By employing NAI's scalable COSA® architecture, L-3 Maritime Systems was able to choose a platform prior to completion of detailed design. As the craft's systems interface designs changed, we were able to accommodate that functionality simply by changing I/O modules on the NAI multifunction I/O boards. This allowed us to move forward with development and hardware decisions earlier, keeping the program on schedule.”

- Tim Lorenzen, Senior Engineering Manager, L-3 Maritime Systems
