Demand Continues for Aircraft-Based Instruments

Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC), a provider of optical products and advanced engineering services, today announced that it had received a contract from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), to build a receiver for their aircraft-based wind measurement instrument. The receiver, based on Michigan Aerospace’s Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology, will enable highly accurate wind measurements to be made in clear air from manned or unmanned aircraft platforms. “The Michigan Aerospace Products Division, launched in 2004, continues to experience growth as demand increases for airborne, space and ground-based instrumentation,” said Scott Lindemann, Manager of the Optical Products Business Unit.
