BARRINGTON, N.J., April 16, 2015 — Edmund Optics Inc. said it has received a multimillion-dollar defense-related contract for custom optical components supporting a smart sensors system.

"We see positive response to new investments in IR molding and diffractive optics technologies, which, in conjunction with traditional processing, pave the path to lighter and higher-performing optics for systems supporting the defense industry," said Samuel Sadoulet, the company's president and chief operating officer.

In addition to commercial off-the-shelf optics, Edmund Optics manufactures precision-grade custom optics for the defense, security and sensors industries. Programs include the PVS-14 and ENVG night-vision systems, One Shot and Family of Weapon Sights for Individual ground soldier (FWSI) systems, and multiple smart munition and missile systems with leading U.S. prime contractors.
