Corning Advanced Optics Unit Receives Raytheon Supplier Awards

Photonics Spectra
Dec 2018
The advanced optics business unit of Corning Inc. has received two 2018 Supplier Excellence EPIC awards from Raytheon.

One of the awards recognizes Corning’s Keene, N.H., manufacturing facility for contributions to Raytheon’s Multi-Spectral Targeting System (MTS). The imaging systems are used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting purposes across a variety of rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.

In Keene, Corning applies its decades of expertise in advanced optics to develop electro-optical/IR systems for the MTS. This is the second year in a row that the facility was recognized by Raytheon for supplier excellence.

The second award for 2018 was given to Corning’s Canton, N.Y., manufacturing facility for contributions to Raytheon’s Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM). The Canton facility applies Corning’s expertise in materials science and proprietary manufacturing processes to create nose cones made of an extremely durable glass ceramic material called Corning Pyroceram.

Both the Keene and Canton manufacturing facilities have been serving the optics, aerospace, and defense industries for more than 30 years. The two facilities are integral in implementing Corning’s core technologies and helping extend its reach across several market-access platforms.

“These awards exemplify the strength of our long-term relationship with Raytheon,” said Cassandra Taliaferro, commercial director for Corning’s advanced optics business. “We are proud to leverage the strengths of these two manufacturing facilities and offer a comprehensive set of aerospace and defense solutions to our customers.”

Raytheon grants EPIC awards to its highest-performing suppliers for overall excellence in performance, innovation, and collaboration for one or more business units.
