Princeton, NJ /PRNewswire/ April 30, 2009 – Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCBB: MKRS), announced today that it has received a $450,000 contract award for four ADEPT V2 systems. These systems are scheduled for delivery to the USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) and the USS Philippine Sea (CG-58) by the end of the 2009 calendar year. ADEPT is being provided to the Navy’s Cruisers (CGs) and Destroyers (DDGs), through the US Navy’s Cruiser and Destroyer modernization program. Earlier this year, the USS Bunker Hill (CG-52) received several ADEPT units as part of this program. This is the first ADEPT production contract funded directly by Navy program funds.
ADEPT is Mikros’ automated maintenance workstation designed to significantly reduce the man-hours required to align the AN/SPY-1 Radar System aboard U.S. Navy AEGIS cruisers and destroyers, while optimizing system performance and readiness. ADEPT represents a new approach to Navy shipboard maintenance, integrating modular instrumentation cards in a ruggedized enclosure with an onboard computer, input and output devices, networking hardware, removable hard drives, and a touch screen display. A custom software application provides the user interface and integrates the hardware with a database that stores user information, instrument readings, maintenance requirements, and training aids. ADEPT can be easily adapted to other complex shipboard systems, and provides integrated distance support capabilities for remote diagnostics and troubleshooting by shore-based Navy experts.
ADEPT provides uniform collection of maintenance and troubleshooting data, advanced distance support capabilities, a platform for custom engineering tools, and has a smaller weight and logistics footprint than an equivalent set of general purpose electronic test equipment typically carried aboard US Navy ships. We are pleased the Navy has decided to order these ADEPT systems now, and we expect to see additional orders very soon.” stated Thomas Meaney, President of Mikros.
