The History of ARINC
How did ARINC evolve into a world leader in communications, engineering and integration?
With the emergence of commercial air travel in the late 1920s, the major airlines of the day needed a communications provider to rely on. Appointed by the Federal Radio Commission (later known as the FCC) as the sole licensee, ARINC was born.
Over the years, ARINC has evolved into a dynamic, progressive leader providing engineering solutions in the aerospace and defense, aviation, airports, government, networks, security, and transportation industries with over 150 innovative products and services worldwide.
Today, we continue to support the commercial aviation industry, as well as the U.S. military by creating unique, versatile innovations designed to be as optimally reliable, secure, efficient, and cost effective as possible.
From the first air-to-ground communications and global data link systems to revolutionary battlefield visibility, critical national resource security, and reverse engineering obsolete parts, ARINC is built on meeting the needs of our customers delivering exactly what they need, when they need it, anywhere in the world.
And on our 80th anniversary, we are still at it—engineering the vision for today and tomorrow.
