HUDSON, N.H., 23 June 2010. Micronetics Inc.’s New Jersey-based subsidiary, Microwave Concepts (Micro-Con), has received orders valued at over $4 million from a major defense OEM for highly integrated microwave subassemblies, reveals a company spokesperson. The subassemblies are used as part of a high-performance airborne jamming system. The anticipated period of performance on this program is approximately 24 months.
“This follow-on contract at our microwave subsystems division, Micro-Con, is significant for several reasons. First, the platforms that these subsystems enable are important strategically because they support current military assets,” says David Robbins, CEO of Micronetics. “These platforms are expected to be in service for many years and will require ongoing support. Second, this contract is a repeat order from an existing customer which validates Micro-Con’s track record of converting engineering prototypes into production hardware.”
Micronetics manufactures microwave and radio-frequency (RF) components and integrated subassemblies used in a variety of defense, aerospace, and commercial applications. Micronetics also manufactures and designs test equipment and components that test the strength, durability, and integrity of communication signals in communication equipment.
