It offers a more technically focussed, integrated partnership that delivers smarter outcomes for its customers.

Trusted by many of the world’s largest, most-respected defence Primes, OEMs and electronics manufacturers, Astute can meet your requirements for traceable electronic components, design-in support, parts procurement and integrated logistics. It provides component engineering support across its franchises, modifying & adapting for your projects and supporting you throughout the design cycle with experienced technical advisers.

Astute’s global sourcing experts, working across a network of international procurement offices and authorised markets, will supply cost-effective, fully traceable electronic components – helping you achieve supply continuity even through challenging market conditions.

Every effort is made to supply components through fully traceable routes but many customers will occasionally need a supply chain for obsolete and ‘difficult-to find’ products. Astute’s bespoke project support services offer secure solutions for these occasions.
