Bonding Source receives production order for LRDR Program

September 2017

Bonding Source received an order for over 15,000 large area conductive epoxy film pre-forms to support Lockheed's LRDR program.  LRDR is a long range radar that will provide precision metric data to improve ballistic defense discrimination and replace existing sensors in the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). With a mission of protecting the homeland, LRDR will keep pace with evolving ballistic missile threats and increase the effectiveness of ground based interceptors.  The pre-forms provided by Bonding Source will start shipping immediately to one of Lockheed's module suppliers and will continue through October 2018.

Bonding Source Donates to Nashua Community College and other area organizations

 

Bonding Source donated $8,500 worth of equipment and supplies to support the microelectronics manufacturing program at Nashua Community College.  “The NCC Microelectronics program is a great example of how business, state government and the community college system can work together to provide relevant training to fill the needs of the advanced manufacturing firms in the area.  The students receive hands on training, spend hours working with the equipment, and have the opportunity to intern at local manufacturers in the area including BAE Systems, Mercury Systems, MACOM, API and Semigen.  Upon course completion, it looks like the placement rate is close to 100%.  We are happy to support this successful program”, says Scott MacKenzie, president of Bonding Source.  The company also provided funds for employees to make a donation to the organization of their choice.  YMCA Camp MiTeNa, Bedford Memorial School, FIRST, Hope for Recovery and HAVEN NH each received a $750.00 donation.
