RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., 3 Jan. 2009.Emrise Corp., a multinational manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, won $1.2 million in orders for network access products for military communications networks in France and the United Kingdom (U.K.).

Shipment of these orders, which were received from existing customers in France and the U.K., will begin this month and are expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter 2009.

The orders were received by the company's CXR Anderson Jacobson (CXR-AJ) subsidiary located in France. CXR-AJ provides a wide range of communications network access products, including new edge network timing and synchronization products sourced from Emrise's CXR-Larus subsidiary located in San Jose, Calif.

"We are especially pleased to receive the orders for the French programs since shipments will begin this month and contribute incrementally to our anticipated strong fourth quarter," Oliva adds. "Since French government spending on these programs had been previously delayed as of mid-year 2008, the timing of the French orders is important as we believe it is a favorable indication of a return to historically higher spending levels for these key programs in 2009.

"Of equal importance, we believe the orders for the newer UK military programs are indicative of a continuation of business for those programs going into 2009," Oliva says.
