BEI supplies MEMS for Predator

July 24, 2002 — BEI Technologies Inc., a San Francisco manufacturer of sensors, motors and actuators, has received an order from Lockheed Martin Electronics for 1,000 quartz angular rate MEMS sensors to be used in the Predator missile.

BEI’s Systron Donner Inertial Division, which BEI says has been working with Lockheed for more than 10 years, makes the sensors. According to John LaBoskey, BEI senior vice president and chief financial officer, the rate sensor is the same one the company sells for automotive stability control systems but it is packaged differently and with an application-specific processor for Lockheed.
