SEE HOW THEY WORK TOGETHER
PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 9, 2004 /PR Newswire-FirstCall/ — Mikros Systems Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: MKRS) announced today the receipt of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase III contract from the Naval Surface Weapons Center – Dahlgren, VA. Valued at approximately $2,400,000, the contract is to complete the development and to begin initial production of an intelligent test tool for Navy radars. The Multi-Function Distributed Analysis Tool (MFDAT) has been designed by the Company under a $1,000,000 SBIR Phase II contract, which began in August 2003.
The MFDAT, an integrated test tool, incorporates standard test equipment such as an oscilloscope, multimeter, and spectrum analyzer into an open architecture, ruggedized computer. Along with integrating all the necessary test equipment functionality into a single unit, the MFDAT contains all the documentation, procedures, manuals, and measurement data necessary for the efficient and accurate servicing of complex military electronic systems. It retains its "personal computer" aspect such that it is operated in a similar way by the individual technician.
Although initially targeted to aid in the alignment and maintenance of the AN/SPY-1 Series Radar in the Navy’s Aegis ships, the MFDAT has broad application in the maintenance and troubleshooting of many types of sophisticated electronic systems. These include other military radars, FAA radar systems, military communication systems, and commercial communication systems which need an effective yet adaptable way to maintain system operation at peak performance.
Mikros Systems Corporation is a high-technology company focused upon the development and application of new technologies in the defense industry and commercial markets.
The public is encouraged to view the Mikros website (www.Mikros.us) for further information and updates on the Company.
