Engineers at the EDO Corp. Electro-Optics Division in Shelton, Conn., are building infrared Earth sensors for the Navstar Global Positioning System (GPS) Block IIF satellites under a $7.6 million contract from Boeing North American (formerly Rockwell) in Seal Beach, Calif. Systems integrators at Boeing will use EDO`s infrared sensors for the upcoming Block IIF satellite constellation, which will yield precise navigational data to military and civil users in all weather conditions anywhere in the
