Company Uses F-35 Lighting On Hawker Horizon 

Astronics Corporation announced Tuesday that its subsidiary, Luminescent Systems, Inc. (LSI), was awarded the contract to develop the landing and taxi lighting system for the Hawker Horizon. Scheduled for first delivery in late 2004, the Hawker Horizon will be Raytheon's largest business aircraft, with high cruise speed and intercontinental range. Astronics will use its metal halide high-intensity discharge (HID) technology in the landing and taxi light system for the Hawker Horizon.

LSI developed the HID technology in conjunction with its development work on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program exterior lighting contract, which Astronics was awarded in late 2002. HID claims its lamps provide improved reliability and longer life than traditional incandescent lamps significantly increasing aircraft dispatch reliability.

James S. Kramer, Vice President of Engineering and Sales for LSI said, "The award demonstrates the successful application of technology developed for the Joint Strike Fighter to non-military aircraft."

Astronics previously announced that it was awarded the cockpit lighting system contract for the Hawker Horizon. This contract included the development of a range of power supplies, keyboards, and control panel assemblies for the aircraft. Estimates on potential revenue were not provided, as it is highly dependent upon the timing and level of production volume of the Hawker Horizon.
