REO nominated for Aviation Week Program Excellence Awards
Boulder, CO – REO, a global leader of precision optical components and assemblies, has been nominated for the 2015 Aviation Week Program Excellence Awards. The program, a joint effort with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, is one of 46 to receive nomination this year. The Aviation Week Program was established in 2005 to recognize those with exemplary program leadership in the aerospace and defense community. Industry and agency program management experts evaluate a program based on the value it creates, the organizational methods and processes used, the ability to adapt and manage complexity, and the ability to set in place metrics for early problem detection and prevention.
“REO is very appreciative of the collaboration we had with Lockheed Martin in conducting the program and is very excited about this nomination with the world’s preeminent aerospace publication” stated Paul Kelly, REO CEO and President. The Aviation Week Program Excellence Awards focus on recognizing leadership and execution, rather than technological breakthrough. The program was developed in an effort to share lessons learned and promote best practices throughout the aerospace and defense industry. Nominated programs receive recognition in the Aviation Week & Space Technology publication and have the opportunity to share best practices and lessons learned during the annual Aerospace Defense Chain Conference November 3-5 in Phoenix, Arizona.
REO produces high precision thin film coatings, optics and opto-mechanical assemblies for ultraviolet, visible and infrared applications. Located in Boulder, CO, the company primarily services medium to high volume OEMs including manufacturers of defense and aerospace systems, laser systems, semiconductor tools, medical systems, life sciences instrumentation and telecom equipment.
