Hexagon Israel sells 3-D camera system to Lockheed

Hexagon Metrology Israel, the local unit of the Swedish company, has won a 555,000-euro ($603,000) order from the U.S. defense contractor Lockheed Martin to help it in manufacturing the F-35 stealth fighter jet. The three-dimensional system is used to measure thousands of connections used to attach the aircraft's trapezoidal wings during manufacturing without having to interrupt production. "Our system, including the 3-D camera, saves time and money, and is more exacting," said Aviel First, vice president for marketing at Hexagon Israel, adding, "We're expecting additional orders from Lockheed after the first systems are installed." Hexagon Metrology Israel sells its 3-D cameras and related equipment to many of the world's leading automobile makers, but recently expanded to aerospace and counts the Israel Air Force among its customers.
