WACO, Texas, 3 Nov. 2006. Ultralife Batteries Inc. through its McDowell Research unit in Waco, Texas, won a $9 million contract from a major U.S. defense contractor for integration kits supporting military communications systems in military vehicles.

Deliveries are to begin this quarter and be completed in the second quarter of 2007. The integration kits are a combination of McDowell's MIK-21-75 vehicle kit and its MRC-195 communication case.

The MIK-21-75 is a permanent installation on High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) while the MRC-195 is a transportable case system to allow for the movement of the system to areas of interest.

The integration kits will enable the U.S. Military to conduct secure broadband communications, including satellite communications, from wheeled vehicles.

"Both Ultralife and McDowell share a philosophy of delivering value to customers through the integration of proven products into complete power systems and a commitment to continue employing this approach to enlarge our presence in the growing prime contractor segment of the military market," says John Kavazanjian, Ultralife's president and chief executive officer.
