ENDICOTT, NY -- Endicott Interconnect Technologies today announced its system-in-package technology performed successfully as part of an anti-missile defense demonstration.

The EI SiP was used in a subsystem in Lockheed Martin's Extended Area Protection and Survivability program during a March 22 test at White Sands (NM) Missile Range. The SiP acted as the command center of a very small hit-to-kill interceptor designed to defeat rocket, artillery and mortar attacks.

"Endicott Interconnect's System-In-Package Technology is a significant enabling technology for clients in a variety of different market segments, in this case aerospace and defense," said Eric Hills, EI vice president, business development. "Not only does this size, weight, and power reduction technology fit perfectly into EI's roadmap, but it has the potential to protect and save the lives of thousands of warfighters,"

Additional tests are set to be conducted in the latter half of 2013.
