API Technologies wins sensor contract

14th December 2011 - 15:17 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


API Technologies has announced that it has been awarded a contract worth $1.4 million for the provision of precision position sensors by an unnamed contractor. According to a 13 December 2011 company statement, the sensors are to be used in air-to-surface missiles carried by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

According to the company, the expansion of armed UAVs within the domestic and international defence communities has led to new growth within the precision position sensor market to enable payloads to adapt to support new missions.

A company spokesman commented on the contract, saying: ‘Applying the latest spatial intelligence technology to our precision position sensors enables API Technologies to deliver superior accuracy to the next generation of military weaponry.’
