SAN DIEGO, 7 Oct. 2005. RF Industries' RF Neulink Telemetry Division today announced it has been awarded an initial contract, valued at approximately $300,000, for its flagship NL6000 wireless modem from the Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), training products and services provider to the U.S. Marine Corps.

The contract includes $71,000 of non-recurring engineering expenses procured by SRI International, the Marines' lead systems integrator for range modernization and transformation.

The NL6000 was designed to meet the functional and performance requirements of mobile data applications for police, fire and emergency medical services, electric and gas distribution, wireless data networks, field service, and transportation applications, including courier, taxi and trucking services.

The modem's small footprint, separate telemetry and mobile media access layers, and flexible and narrow-band capabilities are compelling features for OEM and system integrators in the mobile data market.

"Upon completion and acceptance of specific engineering requirements, which will facilitate battery-operated field applications for the Marine Corps, we anticipate commencing initial shipments of NL6000 wireless transceivers in July 2006. This contract has a follow-on order potential of $350,000," said Robert White, Neulink's sales and marketing director.
