Teledyne Signs German Aerospace Center as First Space Imaging Platform Partner

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 3, 2013 — Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE: TDY) announced today that its subsidiary, Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., in Huntsville, Ala., signed a memorandum of agreement with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) for DLR to develop an instrument for Teledyne’s digital imaging platform, the Multi-User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) which will be mounted on the International Space Station.

DLR plans to develop and deliver an advanced Visual/Near-Infrared Imaging Spectrometer to be integrated with Teledyne’s MUSES platform, currently being developed under a cooperative agreement with NASA. The instrument will occupy one of the four Earth-looking instrument sites on MUSES and will help advance the state of the art in remote sensing technology.

“We are exceedingly pleased to undertake this scientific-industrial partnership with DLR, which has an impressive history in Earth observation,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “We expect to differentiate our imaging business by collecting data of unprecedented spectral quality from space for scientific, commercial, educational, and humanitarian purposes. This instrument will be a cornerstone of that capability.”

Working in the wavelength range from visible through the near infrared, the DLR/Teledyne instrument will enable precise data acquisition of the Earth’s surface for applications including fire-detection, change detection, maritime domain awareness, and atmospheric research. Teledyne will be responsible for integrating and operating the instrument and will collaborate with DLR in several areas, including basic and applied research for use of data in optimizing data collected from other MUSES-hosted instrumentation. Teledyne and DLR anticipate the instrument to be operational by late 2015.

Teledyne Technologies is a leading provider of sophisticated instrumentation, digital imaging products and software, aerospace and defense electronics, and engineered systems. Teledyne Technologies’ operations are primarily located in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Mexico. For more information, visit Teledyne Technologies’ website at www.teledyne.com.
