Frontier is proud to support space exploration by providing NASA and major prime contractors with cost-effective engineering design and production of avionics and electro-mechanical assemblies. For the ISS, FES provided the International docking adapter control panel, the ISS Rotary Joint Motor Controller Interface Unit, Extravehicular Mobility Unit audio control panels, and galley power converters. For Boeing's CST-100 Starliner, FES designed and qualified Crew and Service Module Power Control Assemblies, Main Battery Assembly, crew lighting control assembly, and resistor network assemblies. For the Artemis program, FES has provided numerous circuit card assemblies for Boeing's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and crew controls, power assemblies, and avionics for the Orion capsule.
Frontier Electronic Systems Corp. was selected by Boeing to design, qualify, manufacture, and deliver one engineering, one qualification and five flight Rotary Joint Motor Controller Interface units for NASA’s International Space Station (ISS) in 2009. These units are key to positioning the ISS solar arrays so that they optimize capture of the Sun’s energy.
Frontier’s technical excellence, early unit deliveries, and affordability resulted in Frontier’s 4th Boeing Supplier of the Year Award in 2011.
