Company Profile

Australian Microwave Components (AusMW) was founded by its Managing Director Deane Prescott as a custom design house to develop monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) for applications where there is no extant off the shelf product available.

An independent privately owned company, AusMW is structured around a collaborative workforce of networked engineers and scientists located at a number of sites about the globe (Australia, UK, USA, Hong Kong). We have a business model based on low overheads and a highly experienced and agile team, which enables us to pay specific attention to our client needs, building strong relations, and producing quality products.
