"Their specialised technological expertise has proved particularly successful across the aerospace and defence industries and complements our current technologies targeted at this market sector. We are looking forward to increased involvement with this forward-looking company – to our mutual benefit.”

DML’s CEO, Dr Richard Lang commented: “We are delighted to welcome TMD as an investor. This is a welcome step in enhancing our existing relationship and further developing our joint interests in world-class amplifier products.
 
TMD is an ideal partner for DML, bringing the possibility of new channels through which to develop and exploit our solid-state power amplifier technology.”
