American Systems has received the AS9100C aerospace quality management system certification for the company’s engineering and analytical solutions directorate in Lexington Park, Maryland.
EASD went through a two-day external audit of the unit’s contracts management, program management, engineering and production, risk management, configuration management, purchasing and quality processes prior to the certification, American Systems said Monday.
Peter Smith, president and CEO of American Systems, said the company adheres to a quality policy and conducts annual audits to maintain its ISO 9001:2008 and Capability Maturity Model Integration Level 3 registrations.
The AS9100C distinction, established by the International Aerospace Quality Group, features the ISO 9001:2008 standard and serves as an industry-wide acquisition requirement across the Defense Department and NASA for aerospace and defense companies.
The certification program covers the design, development, testing, integration, production and installation of aircraft avionics, parts and components.
