Our Story

With a long history of avionics manufacturing in Kelowna, Canada, the team at AEM has earned an impeccable reputation with its customers. Building on a foundation of quality and reliability, AEM develops customer-driven avionics solutions that are trusted by some of the aviation industry’s top OEMs, special mission operators and avionics service providers. The team’s innovative engineering capabilities, vertically-integrated manufacturing techniques and technical product support have become its calling card.

Whether it’s the digital communication system, airborne loudspeaker systems, avionics consoles, specialty audio accessories, or its newly launched mission radios, AEM’s customer-driven solutions are designed and built to meet the unique requirements of the special mission operators and integrators that they serve.

Starting with quality and customer service as core values, AEM has grown into a family of over 100 people working together in a 40,000 square foot facility in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. We are a committed team, taking pride in our origin while we continue to grow our combined skills, experience, and capabilities within the aviation and avionics industries.

The most valid measure of our work is our customers—we serve them by being a leader in the design, development and manufacture of aircraft communication systems, loudspeaker systems, caution/warning panels and special mission radios. Dedicated troubleshooting, repair, and refurbishment services complement our product lines, providing customers with a reliable resource for their avionics needs.

Our Capabilities

AEM also provides comprehensive electronics manufacturing services for a select group of companies with STEM products, addressing solutions for the unique challenges of lower volume, high-mix product configurations, and accelerating the go-to-market process.

For small industrial clients and large OEMs alike, our greatest strength is our ability to adapt to our customer’s needs and to deliver the highest levels of workmanship, quality, reliability, and service.

Our Corporate Structure

In 2014, AEM partnered with Structural Monitoring Systems Plc (SMS) in the development, production, and certification of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technology. For four years, AEM and SMS worked together to successfully attain approval of the SHM technology by the Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing.

In late 2017, SMS purchased AEM in a strategic move that fully supports AEM projects and business activities.
