California Microwave wins $9 million order for message processing systems.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 1996--California Microwave Inc. (Nasdaq National Market:CMIC) announced Thursday that its Government Electronics Division in Woodland Hills, Calif., had received a $9.1 million order from the Department of the Air Force, Sacramento Air Logistics Center, for 24 Stand Alone Message Processing Systems (STAMPS), Fault Assistance Modules, and software support.

Deliveries are scheduled to be completed by September 1997.

Bridging the Gap Between Dissimilar Networks

STAMPS is a modularized, expandable system packaged in eight transit cases. The system uses the California Microwave CGS-100 Communications Gateway System for message preparation, receipt, distribution, and message "store and forward" functions. It bridges the gap between dissimilar networks and provides the mechanism for transferring time sensitive information between these networks.

Communication systems based on the CGS-100 are employed around the globe providing deployed units with vital connections to their headquarters and to other units. With over $40 million in orders for CGS-100 related work already booked, California Microwave believes it is the pre-eminent supplier of modem message processing equipment to the U.S. government.

California Microwave Inc. is a leader in wireless communications. It is the number one U.S. supplier of microwave radios and telecommunications satellite earth stations used in wireless communications. The company operates facilities in seven states and sells into more than 110 countries. Its strategy calls for significant expansion in the wireless area.
