RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., 30 Jan. 2009.Emrise Corp., a multinational manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, won a $2.6 million, three-year contract by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to supply a custom version of the company's Halcyon Universal Data Test Set to be installed as part of a multiyear, multibillion-dollar program to upgrade communications technology in the nation's commercial and military aviation control networks.

The contract provides for an initial release of Test Sets valued at approximately $830,000, which are scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter of 2009, says
Emrise CEO Carmine T. Oliva. Oliva expects to receive a subsequent release from the FAA, for delivery
later this year, of additional Halcyon Universal Data Test Sets valued at more than $800,000, with the balance of the units covered by the award to be delivered over the term of the three-year contract.

The contract was received by the company's CXR Larus Corp. (CXR Larus) subsidiary located in San Jose, Calif., which develops and supplies communications equipment, including network timing and synchronization
products, network time servers, network access equipment, and test equipment for both public and private networks.

"This award from the FAA, one of our significant and long term customers, we believe demonstrates the continued confidence and value that the FAA places in CXR Larus products for its advanced communications network
deployment. We believe the order reinforces the value of CXR Larus products in a very diverse and mission-critical marketplace," Oliva says. "In addition, this award and the initial releases contribute to an already strong and
growing 2009 Company revenue outlook and backlog."
