HAUPPAUGE, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2013) - Orbit International Corp. (
The first award, valued at approximately $551,000, is a follow-on order for a COTS power supply used in a U.S. Naval anti-submarine and anti-ship surveillance and targeting system. Deliveries under this contract are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2014 and be completed in the second quarter of 2014. Behlman has booked over $11,000,000 in orders for this application since 1999, and expects to receive additional orders for these units through at least the year 2016.
The second order, valued at approximately $111,000, is for a high voltage power supply used in the U.S. Navy's AN/UYQ-21 display console. These orders are scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2014, with additional orders expected. Several years ago, the U.S. Navy selected this Behlman solution to resolve an obsolescence issue on the AN/UYQ-21 display consoles, which are used throughout its fleet. There are close to 200 of these Behlman units currently in service.
Ron Storm, President of Behlman commented, "Our commitment to building products of the highest quality and reliability has enabled us to secure and maintain these types of long-term business relationships. We have been a reliable source of supply on both of these programs for over 14 years and we remain confident that we will continue to receive follow-on orders from our customers."
Mitchell Binder, President and CEO of Orbit International commented, "These new orders follow the repeat orders that we received for our Power Group this quarter. We are encouraged that these new orders are for our COTS division, which along with our Electronics Group has experienced timing delays on several expected repeat orders due to budget uncertainty. We do expect new orders to be received over the next several weeks which will reaffirm that our legacy business remains intact."
