Secure performs all program functions at our state-of-the-art 47,000 square foot facility in Santa Ana, California. Our AS9100 and ISO9001:2008 certified facility houses the necessary engineering, production, test, quality, and program management elements to accomplish any type of design, production, or support program. We have transitioned over 50 programs from prototype to LRIP and then through full rate production in this facility. Our production facilities have been proven on many IDIQ contracts, with monthly delivery quantities that ranged from as high as 4,000 units to less than 10 units per month.
Secure’s Santa Ana, California facility consists of two adjacent buildings. Our flexible production and test lines are customizable to meet each customer’s unique program requirement. We currently have 180 assembly/test/inspection stations, ten Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) chambers, one AGREE chamber, two vibration tables, and one vacuum chamber.
To meet the changing demands of a high-mix production environment, we have upgraded our facilities and production processes to be 100% paperless. All production information, including incoming material inspection, manufacturing instructions, test reports, inspection logs, are stored on a company-wide production database. With a paperless system, production and test areas throughout the facility can be quickly customized and scaled to each program.
Secure has environmental chambers to perform ESS on units prior to final acceptance. ESS is performed on all end units regardless of whether it was required by the customer. We do this to eliminate latent defects and infant mortality issues. Our chambers are used for the following testing:
- Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)/ Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS)
