Princeton, NJ /PRNewswire/ July 6, 2009 – Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCBB: MKRS), announced today that it received a new contract for engineering and development of distance support applications for U.S. Navy radars. The contract, valued at $225,000, is for the definition of the interface for distance support applications for the Common Digital Sensor Architecture (CDSA) program. This work will take place over the next 8 months. The contract was awarded by DRS C3 Systems, Gaithersburg, MD.
Mikros will provide engineering and technical support tasks relating to the advancement of Distance Support capabilities for the CDSA program. The objective is to develop a common interface design for legacy radar systems related to Distance Support. The interface will be used to automate support processes.
Distance support of complex electronic systems helps reduce the knowledge and skills required to operate and maintain equipment, and improves the quality, quantity, and compatibility of collected field data. Distance support also increases the U.S. Navy’s capability to collect, process, and transfer off-ship all relevant reliability, maintainability, and availability (RM&A), logistics, readiness, and other data required to implement cost-effective sustainability strategies.
Mikros gained extensive experience with distance support technologies while integrating these capabilities into its Adaptive Diagnostic Electronic Portable Testset (ADEPT). Mikros also developed knowledge of U.S. Navy distance support operations while working to secure System Security Approval Authority (SSAA), IT-21 accreditation, and Interim Authority To Operate (IATO) for demonstration of the distance support applications with ADEPT for Trident Warrior 2009.
This new contract confirms our ability to develop and deliver distance support solutions for U.S. Navy radars and other electronic systems,” said Mikros President, Tom Meaney. “We are very pleased to work with DRS C3, and look forward to transferring our knowledge and experience with U.S. Navy distance support programs into the DRS C3 products.”
