Aerospace & Defense

In the never-ending quest for discovery, the world is expanding in three dimensions — not only to the farthest reaches of land and sea but outward into the depths of space. The exploration of this new frontier demands cutting-edge technology built for the challenges of these modern times.

We’re celebrating the 30-year anniversary of Arrow Electronics’ acquisition of Zeus Components, Inc.

Thirty years of dedication and leadership to the aerospace and defense industry, helping to guide innovation forward.

Into a new age of space travel

Space travel, once reserved solely for government-backed initiatives built over decades, is entering a golden new age of privatization and accessibility. This pivot is leading to unprecedented acceleration in the development of aerospace technology. This represents an incredible opportunity both for those organizations leading missions into space and the companies that support them.

Move with speed, move with precision

Moving quickly works only when you can move with speed and precision, particularly in aerospace and defense applications, in which the right technology and reliable supply chain is essential.

Arrow has spent decades building relationships with top-tier manufacturers in mil-spec technology. We put our deep knowledge of the global supply chain to work to help streamline your operations and provide you with cutting-edge parts from verified sources.

As one of the world’s largest distributors of OEM and mil-spec products, as well as a global leader in electronics supply chain solutions, Arrow is your partner for aerospace and defense tech.
