Princeton, NJ / PRNewswire-FirstCall / December 1, 2009 – Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCBB: MKRS – News), announced today that its Adaptive Diagnostic Electronic Portable Testset (ADEPT) product received the highest scores possible in the US Navy’s Trident Warrior experiment in 2009.
Mikros demonstrated ADEPT’s capability to perform advanced distance support for the US Navy’s Aegis System. During the experiment, ADEPT was used to transfer health and performance data for the SPY-1 radar using secure data links. This information was viewed in near-real-time by subject matter experts in California, while the ship performed maneuvers in the Atlantic Ocean.
Each technology demonstrated during the Trident Warrior experiment receives a final grade, which is used to establish its overall utility to the Government. This grade is presented to high-level military planners and is often used to determine future budgets and resource allocations for the technologies demonstrated. The Military Utility Assessment process for Trident Warrior 2009 was completed last week and ADEPT received the highest grades possible. This is a very important achievement,” states Tom Meaney, Mikros President. “We have been told that ADEPT was one of the best Trident Warrior experiments this year. We would expect that these stellar results will help us maintain the funding levels currently proposed for the program, and make it easier to secure the future funding needed to grow the program in support of other radar and electronic systems.”
The company anticipates the award of a five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for immediate and future procurement of ADEPT systems, as well as continued research, development, and lifecycle support. This contract is in the final stages of the Government audit process. Once this is complete, Mikros anticipates another 30 to 45-day negotiation period before contract award. The initial award will include orders for 10 to 35 ADEPT systems, with additional orders for more systems and continued development and support thereafter. Mikros believes that this contract, if awarded, could generate up to $4-5 million annually for the Company over the next 5 years.
