Perkin Elmer bought EGG Reticon. That is only one of many divisions. I 
used to work there and can tell you we made no frequency references. 
Other cool stuff though....

The core of EG&G was a squat office building. Nothing was made there, 
other than governance.

It is a full time job to keep up with how that company was chopped 
apart. These two come to mind.

The military/federal services went to URS and JT3. You might be able to 
find an old annual report on archive.org to get the names of the other 
instrument parts of the business.
