“The delivery enables Raytheon to continue the buildout of this key instrument in the Joint Polar Satellite System, the nation’s next-generation, polar-orbiting operational environmental satellite system. VIIRS is changing the way we see Earth and its value goes well beyond weather prediction, providing vital data to diverse industries like agriculture, finance, transportation, insurance and energy,” said Ed Chung, Raytheon VIIRS Program Manager.
Mark Mirelez, President and CEO of BEI Precision said, “The delivery of the VIIRS Encoder/Motor Assembly for the J4 platform is a major FY19 milestone for BEI Precision and is an integral part of our long term plan to be the supplier of choice for optical encoder products.”
