Coast/Advanced Chip Magnetics, Inc. product offering is a result of over 60 years of heritage evolving with the space and defense electronics technologies.

Over the decades, our magnetic components have been incorporated in the development and deployment of nearly all major domestic aerospace programs. We pride ourselves in helping customers achieve business objectives on time.

Partially reusable crewed spacecraft used
in NASA's Artemis program. Capable of
supporting a crew of six beyond low 
Earth orbit. Orion can last up to 21 days
undocked and up 
to six months docked.


Robotic and human Moon exploration
program led by NASA along with three
partner agencies ESA, JAXA, and
CSA. The Artemis program intends to
reestablish a human presence on the Moon
for the first time since the Apollo 17
mission in 1972.


NASA's lunar Gateway will serve as a staging point for sustained lunar surface exploration and extensibility towards long-term exploration of the Moon and destinations beyond.


James Webb Space Telescope
Largest optical telescope in space. Its high
resolution and sensitivity allow it to view
objects too old, distant, or faint for 
the Hubble Space Telescope.

Space Shuttle
Spacecraft system operated from 1981
to 2011 by NASA as part of the Space
Shuttle Program. The first of four orbital
test flights occurred in 1981, leading
to operational flights beginning in 1982. 
Five complete Space Shuttle orbiter
vehicles were built and flown on a total
of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011.

International Space Station (ISS)
Largest modular space station currently in
low Earth orbit. The ISS is suited for testing
the spacecraft systems and equipment 
required for possible future long-duration
missions to the Moon and Mars.

Uncrewed space probe that landed on the surface of Mars on May 25, 2008, and operated until November 2, 2008. Its instruments were used to assess the local habitability and to research the history of water on Mars.

Gravity and Extreme 
Magnetism Small Explorer (GEMS)

GEMS is the first satellite to launch in an integrated three satellite constellation, in order to revolutionize the way scientists observe air quality over significant swaths of the Northern Hemisphere.

Joint satellite altimeter mission between NASA, the U.S. space agency, to map ocean surface topography. Launched on August 10, 1992, it was the first major oceanographic research satellite.

Communications satellite bus designed in 1985 and introduced in 1987 by Hughes Space and Communications Company. The series was extremely popular in 1990s, with more than 84 purchased by customers globally.

Advanced Extremely
High Frequency (AEHF)

Constellation of communication satellites operated by the US Space Force. The  system consists of six satellites in geostationary orbits.

Simple "bent pipe" analog repeaters, unlike Iridium. A network of ground gateway stations provides connectivity from the 40 satellites to the public switched telephone network and Internet.

Mobile User Objective
System (MUOS-1)

United States Space Force narrowband military communications satellite system that supports a worldwide, multi-service population of users in the ultra high
frequency (UHF) band.

Space-Based Infrared System

Designed to provide key capabilities in the areas of missile warning, missile defense, battlespace characterization and technical intelligence via satellites in geosynchronous Earth orbit (GEO), sensors hosted on satellites in highly elliptical orbit (HEO), and ground-based data processing and control.

Tracking and Data Relay
Satellite System (TDRSS)

The system was designed to replace an existing network of ground stations that had supported all of NASA's crewed flight missions. The prime design goal was
to increase the time spacecraft were in communication with the ground and improve the amount of data that could be transferred.

Robotic space probe launched by NASA of the United States, on May 4, 1989, to map the surface of Venus by using synthetic-aperture radar and to measure the planetary gravitational field.

Robotic space probe that studied the planet Jupiter and its moons, as well as the asteroids Gaspra and Ida. Named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, it consisted of an orbiter and an entry probe. 

The first United States space station, launched by NASA, occupied for about 24 weeks between May 1973 and February 1974. Major operations included an orbital workshop, a solar observatory, Earth observation, and hundreds of experiments.

Named after the Latin word for rain cloud, the Nimbus satellites were a series of seven Earth-observation satellites launched over a 14-year time period from 1964 to 1978, one of which did not achieve orbit. In total, the satellites provided Earth meteorological observation for 30 years.

Scientific program that employs two robotic interstellar probes, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. They were launched in 1977 to take advantage of a favorable alignment of Jupiter and Saturn, to fly near them while collecting data for transmission back to Earth. After launch, the decision was taken to send Voyager 2 near Uranus and Neptune to collect data for transmission back to Earth. 

Successfully orbited on 7th August 1971 on an Atlas-F OV1 launch vehicle. This satellite is in a low earth orbit with a life time of about 75 years and still being
used for radar calibration measurements.

Robotic interplanetary probes used to explore the inner Solar System - visiting the planets Venus, Mars and Mercury for the first time, and returning to Venus and Mars for additional close observations.

Two series of United States lunar and planetary
space probes exploration. The first program
successfully sent one spacecraft to fly by the Moon
and the orbits of Earth and Venus. The second
program sent four spacecraft to measure interplanetary 
space weather, two to explore Jupiter and Saturn,
and two to explore Venus.

Series of unmanned space missions by the US in the 1960s whose objective was to obtain the first close-up images of the surface of the Moon. The Ranger spacecraft were designed to take images of the lunar surface, transmitting those images to Earth.
