I don't know. Wikipedia only says Honeywell imported Pentax cameras, I could find nothing else.

It's in the Minolta article: "Minolta purchased the patent rights to autofocus lens technology from Leica Camera in the 1970s [...] Unfortunately for Minolta, its autofocus design was found to infringe on the patents of Honeywell, a U.S. corporation. After protracted litigation, in 1991 Minolta was ordered to pay Honeywell damages, penalties, trial costs, and other expenses in a final amount of $127.6 million"
