GET Engineering

GET’s Specialty is in Legacy Solutions


GET Engineering participates in a global market and is a leading supplier of NTDS and ATDS adapters, legacy conversion and engineering services and support to over 300 customers in the Department of Defense and prime contractors worldwide.

With GET’s core capabilities in legacy data over Ethernet communications systems, our products help extend the product life cycle of legacy systems.

Our leading edge designs, products, and services are consistently benchmarked to rigorous quality standards from raw material to finished products. Research and Development programs are done in-house. Each program and product is subjected to extensive lab testing by GET professionals. Working with our customers and implementing their requirements into our innovative products distinguishes GET from the competition.

GET provides a comprehensive line of PCI family products, including Compact PCI (cPCI), PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC), PCI Express (PCIe) and PC104-plus form factors for embedded computing applications. With both air-cooled and conduction-cooled boards, these products can be applied to a wide variety of embedded applications across military, communications, and commercial/industrial markets. With GET’s Common User Interface (CUI) software driver, application design and development is achieved at a much quicker rate than could otherwise be achieved.
