During the 50th Annual AOC International Symposium and Convention, October 27-30 in Washington, D.C., dB Control will be recognized for its innovation and contributions to the electronic warfare (EW) industry. At the event, a written summary about the company’s influence on EW will be featured in the 50th Anniversary History Hall. A profile on the corporation was published in AOC’s new book, AOC Legacy: The First 50 Years.

dB Control will continue to celebrate AOC’s 50th anniversary by exhibiting six high-power defense electronics products in Booth 225 at the convention. As the official “Lanyard Sponsor” of the event, the company’s name and logo will be displayed on lanyards worn by all show attendees.

“dB Control has a lengthy history of EW innovation – especially when it comes to mission critical operations that help keep military personnel safe. In fact, our MPMs are onboard some of the military’s most noteworthy airborne platforms, like the MQ-9 Reaper and RQ-4 Global Hawk. As a manufacturer, we have our own mission – to keep raising the bar without ever sacrificing reliability or performance,” said Vice President of Business Development Steve Walley.

dB Control has designed, manufactured and delivered more than 300 MPMs for use in power radar systems, ECM systems, EW simulators and data links. The AOC has honored dB Control employees with the Business Management Award, induction into the Electronic Warfare Hall of Fame and more. Additional information about the products dB Control will exhibit is available by emailing Steve Walley.
