Zygo Receives Order for Helmet-Mount Displays
Sep 2010
MIDDLEFIELD, Conn., Sept. 23, 2010 — Zygo Corp.’s Optical Systems Div. was awarded a $4.7 million continuation contract for advanced helmet mount displays (AHMD) from L-3 Communications, Link Simulation and Training Div. in support of two new programs from the US 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 Div. “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."

Zygo also was awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to produce AHMDs for the US Air Force F-16 air crew training program in late 2009.

Dr. Chris L. Koliopoulos, president and CEO of Zygo, said, “This complex and challenging electro-optics system leverages Zygo’s expertise in optical fabrication and assembly methodologies to deliver consistent performance for this demanding application from our electro-optics assembly and manufacturing group.”

The AHMD was developed by Zygo’s electro-optics group, which provides state-of-the-art optical systems to the defense, life sciences and industrial markets.

Zygo supplies optical metrology instruments, precision optics, and electro-optical design and manufacturing services serving customers in the semiconductor capital equipment, biomedical, scientific and industrial markets.
