One of the proudest and most intuitively assembled engineering teams in the industry

Trak: Engineering Lab

TRAK's engineering team is a full bench of multi-disciplined RF/microwave, and time and frequency pros. With both component and subsystem experience delivering to the industry's biggest players in space, defense, and commercial applications, there's nothing they can't handle. And our growing collaboration with our fellow high frequency engineers within the Smiths Interconnect brand family, enhances our capablities even further.


Unique disciplines and software skills throughout every design phase

In addition to TRAK's core design team of experienced designers of complex RF/Microwave and time and frequency systems, ours also includes talented engineers with expertise in micro-controllers and software programming, too. Uniquely versed in strategies and techniques for diverse environments, TRAK's collective design team has proven success in fully programmed and controlled solutions. These include designs for the harshest conditions such as satellite, rugged industrial, airborne tactical, and naval shipboard environments.


Wholly one-quarter of TRAK's staff is deeply involved with the engineering design phase, which provides significant leverage in tackling mission critical defense, homeland, and aerospace system challenges. Several members of our staff have obtained advanced degrees and training from the University of South Florida. We also support The University of South Florida by teaching course work related to the microwave industry and funding periodic joint research projects associated with the WAMI (Wireless and Microwave Information systems) program.
