Protecting Our Land

Munro & Associates has been privileged to work on various defense aircraft, land vehicles, missiles, ships, and other defense systems. Munro has also crafted special design and manufacturing tools unique to the defense industry, such as the Design Profit MRL® analysis, auditing, and compliance software. No stranger to R&D and new concept design, Munro has helped defense companies achieve excellence, reducing cost, weight, and program completion time while increasing quality and reliability in the field.
