Princeton, N.J., Nov. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCQB: MKRS), a technology company specializing in electronic systems for advanced maintenance in military, industrial and commercial applications, announced today that it was awarded a new Delivery Order under its ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite (ADSSS) IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) contract with the U.S. Navy. The Delivery Order of up to $6 million covers development of a new variant of the AN/SYM-3 Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) system and installation of the new CBM system on two additional ship classes; the Aircraft Carriers (CVN class) and the "Big Deck" Amphibious Assault Ships (LHD/LHA class). This SYM-3 system has already been installed on the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).
"We are very pleased to report that Mikros has been awarded this new Delivery Order as Design Agent for the Navy's AN/SYM-3 system. This substantial order extends the system to two additional classes of Navy ships," said Lori Ogles, Mikros Senior Program Manager. "This program will ensure that we continue to enhance the design and effectiveness of the system, and gives us the opportunity to prove its value on other Navy platforms."
The SYM-3 system provides remote status monitoring, secure networking, and data analytics for the key components of the ship's Combat System, including sensors and weapons systems. The system provides near real-time feedback on system performance and analyzes data to establish trends and anticipate failures.
Mikros CEO Tom Meaney added, "Extending the SYM-3 system to other ship classes has been an important strategic goal of ours since we started the ADSSS program in 2013. This important order is the result of our substantial experience in developing remote monitoring and condition- based maintenance solutions for the United States Navy over the past six years. There are many other Navy systems and ships where Condition-Based Maintenance capabilities are planned. Extending the program into two new ship classes represents a monumental achievement and provides Mikros with an opportunity to generate multiple additional task orders under our existing IDIQ contract and grow our business. We are working diligently to develop new applications for the SYM-3, which provides a cyber-secure environment for remote monitoring and data analytics and helps keep the ship and its systems ready to fight."
