Tuesday February 7, 10:13 am ET
MITCHEL FIELD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2006--Frequency Electronics, Inc. (AMEX - FEI) has been awarded a follow-on contract for a time and frequency system to be deployed on a secure communication satellite program. This program is the successor system to a similar major long-term military program for which FEI provided master clocks on many satellites over a multi-year period. During the past three years, FEI developed and manufactured initial flight hardware for the first phase of the current secure communication program. This latest contract calls for the Company to build an ultra-low phase noise clock system along with synthesizer and distribution subsystems. The contract amount is in excess of $3 million and is to be delivered in less than two years.
Commenting on this award, President and CEO Martin Bloch said: "Our participation in this important military program acknowledges FEI's ability to provide state-of-the-art, very low phase noise clock and synthesizer systems. Additionally, it demonstrates FEI's capacity to supply not only master clocks but much larger portions of satellite payloads."
