Orlando, FL—In keeping with its strategy of vertical integration, Salvo Electro Optics LLC (Salvo EO) is pleased to announce that it has won a number of optical and electro optical assembly contracts. A member of the Salvo Technologies LLC group of companies, Salvo EO specializes in electro-optics and in optical fabrication and assembly. In 2012, the company installed a Class 1000 clean room to better support its assembly business. Since that time, it has been aggressively pursuing business in the sector with a philosophy of taking on projects that its competitors won’t or can’t.
Salvo EO will be working with sister division Salvo Defense LLC to mass produce its Sapphire Fire Control assembly, designed to be both lightweight and rugged enough to withstand harsh combat and hunting environments. The secret lies in the sapphire external lenses. Sapphire is a highly scratch resistant material that operates in the visible through IR spectral regions. It provides high performance but the same properties that deliver that performance make it challenging to polish effectively.
The project highlights Salvo EO’s ability to provide onestop service. Beyond simply assembling the devices, the company is designing the products and developing proprietary processes and procedures to make all lenses and components within each optical system. In particular, Salvo Defense has commissioned Salvo EO to fabricate all of the sapphire external lenses for the entire Sapphire Fire Control product line.
“The sheer number of these recent wins underscores the commitment of our team to quality and outreach,” said Eric Mackey, president of Salvo EO. “Investing in the cleanroom as well as test tooling positions us to take on these types of projects and grow as our customers grow. Backed by the input and capabilities of our sister divisions within Salvo Technologies, we are confident that this is just the start of an important growth surge.”
