Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 16, 2014 — Advanced Photonix Inc. has been awarded a $1.6 million contract to develop custom photodiodes for the U.S. Navy.

The devices will serve as detectors for the Guided Missile Weapon System, which features guided missiles designed to protect ships of all sizes, destroy anti-ship missiles and provide high firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously.

The missile’s airframe system rotates for greater accuracy, which requires the mounting of four detectors spaced at 90° from each other. The new photodiodes will be mounted on the missile’s proximity sensing detectors.

Advanced Photonix has previously provided the military with components for head-up displays, satellite positioning, laser range finding and navigation.
