Impact Components of San Diego is one of five small businesses that the U.S. Navy will use to procure electronic components — such as integrated circuits, resistors, capacitors, transistors and flash chips.

Impact will now compete for task orders under the deal. The government estimates that it will spend $9.25 million among the five vendors over the five years of the contract.

The San Diego business specializes in components that are at the end of their lives or obsolete. “If it exists on this planet,” says the Impact Components website, “we will track it down.”

The Navy’s other vendors are in Southern California and New Jersey.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division in China Lake awarded the contract. Ten companies bid for the work.
