U.S. Navy Awards Contract to Telenetics for Microwave Radios.
LAKE FOREST, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 8, 2001
Telenetics Corp. (Nasdaq:TLNT) announced today that it has been awarded a multi-year contract for approximately $876,000 by the U.S. Navy's Fleet and Industrial Supply Center for delivery of its Micropass(TM) series of microwave radios.
The contract requires first delivery and installation of Micropass(TM) radios in the Navy's aerial targeting and gunnery ranges within 90 days.
The microwave radios to be purchased under this contract will be utilized by the Naval Warfare Assessment Station as a key part of their scoring and target accuracy system. The Navy's sophisticated scoring systems rely on wireless microwave signaling technology due to the damage that terrestrial-based links such as cable or fiber sustain during actual bombing and gunnery practice. The Navy Warfare Assessment Station provides these systems to several branches of the military including the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force.
Telenetics' Micropass(TM) microwave radios have been previously installed on selected U.S. Army bases including Kuwait as the backbone of a Closed Circuit Television system deployed by the Army, which transmits video images over the wireless backbone network. The systems are used for security and the transmission of video images between facilities on the Army bases.
