SEE HOW THEY WORK TOGETHER
Princeton, NJ /PRNewswire-FirstCall/February 8, 2008 – Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCBB: MKRS ) announced today that its ADEPT Radar Test Set equipment is a candidate for inclusion in the equipment baseline of the United States Navy AEGIS Cruiser (CG) and Destroyer (DDG) Modernization program.
The ADEPT system, developed by Mikros under the Navy’s Small Business Innovation Research program, has been extensively tested by the Navy on land and at sea, and has proven to be an invaluable tool in maintaining the most advanced shipboard radar systems. ADEPT has been designed to assure optimum radar performance, improve readiness and reduce equipment down time. Improvements to the mission effectiveness of the AEGIS fleet are particularly timely as these ships will support the Navy’s Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) capability.
In 2007 the Navy ordered ten units of the new lightweight ADEPT model. The Navy recently obtained 2008 funding for additional systems. Up to 84 ships are eligible to be equipped with multiple ADEPT units per ship to test and align the AN/SPY-1 phased array radar.
“This product began as a tool to enhance the readiness of the SPY-1 radar, but it is developing into a much broader set of applications,” said Tom Meaney, President of Mikros.
Development work is underway to apply the ADEPT system to other shipboard systems beyond the SPY-1 radar, which could further enhance readiness. ADEPT distance support capabilities will allow remotely-located subject matter experts to perform preventive and corrective maintenance activities, potentially providing significant maintenance cost savings to the fleet.
Mikros is also currently pursuing other ADEPT market opportunities, including aircraft carriers, amphibious ships, submarines, and the allied fleets.
