Heads-up displays: L-3 awards Zygo $4.7M contract for Advanced Helmet Mount Displays

Sept. 16, 2010
Middlefield, CT--Zygo’s Optical Systems Division was awarded a $4.7 million continuation contract for Advanced Helmet Mount Displays from L-3 Communications.

Middlefield, CT--Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIGO), a supplier of optical metrology instruments and high precision optical systems, announced that its Optical Systems Division was awarded a $4.7 million continuation contract for Advanced Helmet Mount Displays (AHMD) from L-3 Communications, Link Simulation and Training Division, in support of two new programs from the United States and Australian Air Forces.

"Zygo's AHMD continues to provide industry leading performance and ergonomics for today's most demanding flight simulator applications," said John Stack, president of the Optical Systems Division. "AHMD is uniquely suited for fixed wing applications that require high visual acuity and field of view, so it is not surprising that the demand for this product continues to grow."

This continues production of AHMD's from an earlier contract, when Zygo was awarded a multi-million dollar contract to produce AHMD's for the United States Air Force F-16 air crew training program in late 2009.

The AHMD was developed by Zygo's electro-optics group, which provides optical systems to the defense, life sciences, and industrial markets. Zygo Corporation is a supplier of optical metrology instruments, precision optics, and electro-optical design and manufacturing services serving customers in the semiconductor capital equipment, bio-medical, scientific, and industrial markets.
