Additionally, attendees participated in tours of the facility, including a look at the glass manufacturing lab for the company’s precision navigation products and the situational awareness area that develops integrated cockpits and avionics equipment for aircraft such as the UH-1Y.

The site drives the company’s navigation systems business, contributing to NSD having more inertial navigation systems used on aircraft than all other manufacturers combined.
