Intevac receives $9.6m IDIQ NAVAIR contract
Intevac Photonics, a subsidiary of Intevac, Inc., announced today it has received a $9.6M IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) contract from the US Navy Naval Air Warfare Center. This contract covers on-going performance improvements of Intevac's proprietary four mega-pixel digital night vision sensor (ISIE 4000) for various Navy aircraft platforms. This sensor is based on Intevac's patented EBAPS (Electron Bombarded Active Pixel Sensor) design of digital imaging sensors for extreme low light-level detection. The award represents a five year base contract with additional options. Intevac received the initial delivery order for $1.9M within the IDIQ award.
"This contract for further enhancements of our four mega-pixel EBAPS digital sensor is an important award for our business, as it represents the US Military's continued support of our sensor technology, allowing us to expand our product family of EBAPS digital sensors for key US Military applications," commented Joe Pietras, executive vice president and general manager of Intevac Photonics.
