About Us

Our History


Our Birth

Established in 1986, WORK Microwave originally focused on a series of research projects and product design on behalf of other industry players. The company’s initial strength involved creating clean clock sources. Key product areas included oscillators, synthesizers, and IF and RF frequency converter modules.

In 1992, the company expanded into design, manufacturing, and distribution of its own product lines for OEM applications. During this time period, RF signal generators were added to WORK Microwave’s portfolio.

Defence electronic modules became a specialty of WORK Microwave in 1995. A few years later, the company introduced microwave sensors.


The new millennium ushered in an exciting growth period for WORK Microwave. With the start of the digital era, the company launched digital RF solutions, developing a comprehensive range of video and network devices.

Approaching 2010, the navigation market exploded with the introduction of GPS, Galileo, WAAS, and GLONASS. The satcom industry also experienced a flurry of activity with the launch of the Ka-band. WORK Microwave stepped up its development efforts in both areas, creating IP-based technologies for the first time and becoming a DVB project member.


Presently, WORK Microwave operates four operating divisions — Satellite Technologies, Defence Electronics, Sensors and Measurement, and Navigation Simulators.

WORK Microwave moved into new 3,500 sqm facilities, double the size of the old space. This expansion demostrates the commitment to continuously improving customer service by boosting the company’s production capabilities reinforced with investment in new machinery, quality and process control.
