Protect Your Assets With XACT EMS

Military & Defense Solutions

The challenges of geopolitical uncertainty, foreign and domestic unrest and advancing competition have created complex conditions for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in Aerospace, Defense and Security. At XACT EMS, we excel working in these conditions as an OEM, providing solutions featuring the latest technology and capabilities for mission-critical military applications and features.

Case Study

The Challenge

The US Army was experiencing challenges with the field repairable fuse holder for the M1 Abrams main battle tank. The issue was causing severe downtime for services.

The Solution

After listening to and understanding the issue at hand, XACT EMS worked quickly and efficiently to design and engineer a field repairable fuse holder that is 100% shielded and ideal for use on Military Vehicles. 


Upon presenting the solution, the US Army approved and adopted the innovative shielded fuse holder for use in M1 Abrams. The product is still utilized today and is a representation of the strong manufacturing expertise that we have for the United States Department of Defense.
