Mitchel Field, NY (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Frequency Electronics, Inc. (“FEI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ-FEIM) announces a contract award of approximately $19m from a major U.S. aerospace prime contractor to supply on-board precision frequency-generation systems for a multi satellite program. Under this contract, FEI will develop, manufacture, test and deliver within 24 months, state-of-the-art frequency generators and microwave synthesizers. The systems will provide multiple microwave frequencies for the spacecraft platforms within which they are deployed, and enhance their mission effectiveness. This high-performance hardware is derived from similar models that FEI has provided in the past for U.S. Government satellites, and which are successfully operating in orbit.
Tom McClelland, FEI CEO, commented, “This program award demonstrates the importance of FEI’s continuous role in supporting U.S. Government secure communication systems, and also shows that FEI’s investments in these key technologies continue to keep FEI an essential participant in critical U.S. Government programs.”
