David Clark Company has pioneered air and space crew protective equipment design, development and manufacture since 1941, with products ranging from anti-G suits to space suits. David Clark Company’s tradition of providing crew protective equipment for leading edge, manned aerospace programs continues into the future, as our designers apply their expertise to passenger and crew protection in the commercial space flight market.

In 1975, David Clark Company introduced the first noise-attenuating headset designed to provide hearing protection for pilots, while also providing clear reception and crisp transmission at normal voice levels in a noisy aircraft. Since then, the ‘green domes’ have consistently set the standards of comfort, quality and performance in aviation headset design and manufacture. Today, our broad line of passive noise attenuating and Electronic Noise Cancelling (ENC) aviation headsets for both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft is the top choice for general aviation and commercial pilots.

PS Engineering is proud to offer a unique audio solution that will fit almost any mission. In 1985, Mark Scheuer, the company founder, a graduate of the College of Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a pilot, found himself wondering when the revolution would come to the field of audio control. At the time, aircraft intercoms and audio panels had seen virtually no improvement in over a decade. With new digital circuitry and technologies, he believed it was time for the revolution to begin.

Today, PS Engineering has become a leading manufacturer of both general aviation and special mission audio control systems. The company’s sole corporate focus is excellence in the design and manufacture of audio control systems. PS Engineering is credited for many innovations in the field, including IntelliAudio®, IntelliVox®, flightmate®, MultiTalker®, Softmute™, Split mode™, Swap Mode™ and the IRS™(Internal Recording System), as well as being the first to integrate Bluetooth® in audio control systems.

PS Engineering does not make GPS, transponders, or auto pilots, audio control is our one and only mission. With this type of product focus, it is no wonder why PS Engineering pioneered many of today’s audio panel’s innovations. With a network of more than 400 authorised dealer / installers worldwide, the company is a leader in retrofit avionics as well as a supplier to other major avionics manufacturers for their audio panel requirements.

Even though Sigma Tek has only been around since 1983, it has a long, rich history. The actual Wichita operations started in June 1950 by Ray Erwin. In 1969, EDO Corporation of College Point, New York purchased the Wichita Division of the Weston Instrument Company.  That same year EDO acquired the stock of Electronic Equipment Engineering, Inc. (EEE) of Dallas.  EEE designed and produced radio / audio control equipment for long range aircraft.  These acquisitions by EDO completed its entry into the general aviation market. EEE was moved to Wichita in 1970.

The next decade saw general aviation reach its pinnacle, producing over 18,000 new aircraft in 1978 alone.  But due to soaring product liability costs, fuel costs, governmental actions and other economic factors, a sharp decline in the industry started the next year.  By 1987, fewer than 1600 general aviation aircraft were produced. In late 1982, EDO made a business decision to divest itself of the EDO-Aire Group practically ending a sixty-year presence in the aviation industry.  In April 1983, four key executives of EDO-Aire Wichita formed Sigma Tek, Inc. and subsequently purchased the assets of EDO-Aire Wichita from EDO Corporation in May 1983 and a new era had begun.

Since its formation, Sigma Tek has continued to manufacture and distribute aviation instruments, accessories and control panels to the worldwide aviation industry.  We are continuously conducting research and development for improvement of our current product line as well as for the development of new products. On 1 May 1986, Sigma Tek moved its entire operation to a new, modern, 42,500 square foot facility in Augusta, Kansas.

On 1 September 1987, Sigma Tek purchased Aircraft Radio Corporation (ARC) from Honeywell, Inc.  Prior to its purchase by Honeywell in late 1983, ARC had been a wholly owned subsidiary of Cessna Aircraft.  It is interesting to note that at the time when general aviation was at its highest, ARC was by far our largest customer.  Through ARC, we service and support nearly all of the avionics and flight control systems for Cessna Aircraft. In 1990 Sigma Tek decided to delve into the development and marketing of new state-of-the-art digital radio / audio control panels for the commercial aviation market.  Since then, Sigma Tek has made many breakthroughs in the advancement of technology.  Even though Sigma Tek is a small company, we are a major force in the general aviation community. In our brief history we have managed to grow and be profitable throughout the dedication and hard work of our employees.  This performance was during a period in which general aviation was suffering one of the worst downturns of any industry in our nation’s history.
