PHELPS, N.Y., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Phelps, N.Y.-based Video Display Corp. said it was selected by Harris Corp.'s radio frequency business to make an electromechanical sub-assembly.
The three year $1 million contract is for Video Display's subsidiary Z-Axis to manufacture the electromechanical technologies for incorporation into a Harris RF product. Officials say Harris RF is a supplier of secure voice and data communications products for the U.S. military among others.
"We're pleased to be working with Z-Axis, which was highly recommended by other groups within Harris for its quality and on-time delivery," Thomas Kenney, Harris RF Communications vice president of product line management, said in a statement. "The military communications systems we produce have challenging requirements for durability and reliability."
Officials say Z-Axis is a developer of printed circuit board assemblies and electromechanical assemblies among other electronic systems technologies for government agencies.
"Harris RF has very stringent standards for quality and process control, and we are pleased that they recognize our ability to meet those high standards," Michael Allen, president of Z-Axis. "Going through their rigorous qualification process highlighted many things that we do exceptionally well versus our competitors, and brought out additional ideas that we have already implemented to further improve our processes."
