Product Lifecycle Management

North Atlantic Industries manufactures high-performance COTS products built on standard industry platforms that offer multiple design, development and test benefits. With that however, comes the constant threat of component obsolescence and unwanted change.

We understand that application stability and predictability is essential for many of the mission-critical systems we support. Our customers measure program life in decades, while the ever-increasing pace of technology continues to compress the lifespan of commercial products to 18 months or less.

The Problem

How do you minimize the risk of recurring cost impacts and supply disruptions of the commercial world while feeling confident that your program investments will be protected?

Work with us.

Technology Insertion & Extended Lifecycle Support

Our dedication to a technology insertion strategy and the delivery of Lifecycle Extension Services provides the disciplines to proactively manage the challenges associated with Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) and deliver the long-term reliability you seek.

The modular nature of our architecture drives sharing of common modules and components across our product lines. As a result, we share your motivation in ensuring that our products meet the original functional, environmental and operating requirements over a long lifespan - even in the face of component obsolescence.

This approach delivers reduced risk while balancing performance, stability and enhanced performance over a product life of 10 years or more from Product Introduction.
