Hayden, Idaho’s Transtector Systems lands $4.6 million contract for advanced EMP protection panels

Hayden-based Transtector Systems has won a $4.6 million contract to build advanced and highly secure panels used by the Air Force to protect Minuteman missile control systems from attack. The award was announced by Smiths Interconnect, a global corporation with extensive programs in research and defense contracts. Transtector Systems is part of Smiths Interconnect.

The Air Force contract is based on three years of testing and development by Transtector engineers, the press release said. The panels are designed to resist EMP damage; EMP stands for electromagnetic pulse, a surge in electrical radiation that can fry equipment and circuit boards, leaving them useless.

The surge protection devices developed at Transtector Systems are used in communications systems in military vehicles, watercraft, aircraft and facilities.
