PRINCETON, N.J., May 3, 2016, MKRS, /PRNewswire/ — Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCQB: MKRS) announced today that the U.S. Navy and several of its commercial customers have recently signed new contracts and orders for continued support of Mikros hardware and software products.
Mikros produces advanced maintenance systems for the Navy, including the ADEPT Maintenance Automation Workstation and the ADSSS Condition Based Maintenance system for the Littoral Combat Ship. To date over 200 ADEPT systems, produced at the Company’s Manufacturing and Depot Center in Largo FL, have been delivered to the Navy and are in daily use for performance optimization of advanced radar systems. This established production program continues to generate recurring revenues for logistics support of ADEPT, and the Navy has recently issued new Task Orders to Mikros to provide ongoing calibration, repair, training and engineering support services for the ADEPT systems deployed on Navy destroyers and cruisers.
Mikros also provides two software products, Prognostics Framework and Diagnostic Profiler, to several commercial and defense customers for “Condition Based Maintenance” in various industrial applications. These software products also generate recurring revenues when customers renew their software maintenance support contracts on a yearly basis. Recently, Hewlett Packard, Saab and Northrop Grumman have each renewed their maintenance agreements with Mikros.
“Together these orders for ongoing support of our products total just over $600,000, but their significance extends far beyond the immediate revenues,” said Tom Meaney, Mikros President and CEO. “First, they represent a major vote of confidence from both our established Navy customer and our new commercial customers. Second, they indicate that there is significant potential for recurring revenue streams as we support both hardware and software products in real world applications. We thank our current customers for their continuing support, and believe that life-cycle support of our product lines will continue to be a successful and profitable enterprise.”
