Filtronic awarded £4.5 million contract with BAE Systems

We are now able to bring you further details on one of the contract awards we announced at the end of 2023. This contract with BAE Systems is for the supply of RF electronic modules.

The contract was awarded by BAE Maritime Services. Product qualification is due to start in October 2023, with the product being supplied over the next 24 months.

Filtronic was successful in a collaboration with PRFI — a leading UK-based technical design consultancy providing services to design and develop monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs). Filtronic was responsible for developing advanced packaging for the MMICs that was optimised both thermally and for radio frequency (RF) performance.

Filtronic already supplies advanced microwave filter solutions to BAE Systems, but we’re excited to showcase our expertise further.
