We anticipate better revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2009 due to the completion of ADEPT units ordered earlier this year.,Aeu
The initial delivery order under the anticipated IDIQ contract is expected to include procurement of between 10 and 35 ADEPT systems with continued funding for development and support. Procurements for up to 30 additional ADEPT units are expected within the first six-months of award. By the end of calendar year 2010, Mikros could see orders for up to 60 units. Mikros believes that, if awarded, this contract could generate up to $4-5 million of revenue annually for the Company over the next five years.
Mikros has also submitted proposals to the Government for continued development of the Network Vulnerability to Electronic Attack analysis and autonomous PowerBuoy technologies. These contract awards are anticipated within the next three to six months. If awarded, these contracts would initially provide up to $2 million of revenue for additional research and development work on these projects. The Company has also recently received multiple subcontracts to support Ocean Power Technologies, Inc., DRS C3 Systems, Inc., and Technology Service Corporation on various projects.
We believe that we are well positioned for a very positive 2010,” stated Tom Meaney. “We are finally beginning to see some closure on the Government contracts anticipated all year, and are prepared to finally deliver ADEPTs in significant quantities to the US Navy. We are also pleased to see such strong interest from our customers in the NVEA and PowerBuoy technologies. Mikros will continue to pursue other avenues for revenue growth as well, including international sales of ADEPT and strategic partnerships into new business areas.”
