Santa Ana, CA - Cal Quality Electronics, a leader in the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry serving OEM customers, today announced a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract signing with The Boeing Co. in Huntington Beach to support the Combat Survivor Evader Locater (CSEL) program.
Cal Quality is providing manufacturing, assembly and testing services to Boeing for the Combat Survivor Evader Locator (CSEL), a major government program that is the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Program of Record for Joint Search and Rescue.
CSEL provides global coverage for U.S. DoD forces worldwide. This fully qualified, next-generation survival radio system is comprised of over-the-horizon relays, ground, and user equipment segments for the joint services.
"Cal Quality is extremely proud to have been selected by Boeing to provide manufacturing support for the CSEL program," said Cal Quality VP of sales Ken Haney.
"Our goal is to deliver the highest quality product in support of this critical, life-saving capability," he added.
CSEL minimizes the search aspect of a rescue mission by providing recovery forces with precise geo-positioning information and secure, over-the-horizon and line-of-sight, two-way data communications capabilities.
These capabilities enable Joint Personnel Recovery Centers (JPRCs) and recovery forces to locate, authenticate, and communicate with Isolated Personnel (IP) in near real-time, anywhere in the world.
Haney stated several reasons Cal Quality was contracted for this project:
"As an AS9100 Certified and ITAR registered company we have an excellent reputation in the industry for manufacturing quality products, on-time and supporting our customers. Obviously, we were price competitive with the other companies that participated in the bid process. Our facility and procedures also successfully passed the quality audit process required by Boeing."
