Mikros Systems awarded $2.8 million contract With the U.S. Navy

Mikros Systems Corporation, announced July 8 that it was awarded a $2.8 million contract to deliver new condition-based maintenance capabilities for radars and electronic systems aboard the U.S Navy’s Littoral Combat Ships.

Over the past three years Mikros has delivered more than 100 Adaptive Diagnostic Electronic Portable Test-set systems to the U.S. Navy for use on Aegis Cruisers and Destroyers. ADEPT has been embraced by the U.S. Navy for its potential to reduce shipboard maintenance and deliver new distance support solutions. This new contract will extend ADEPT capabilities to deliver the ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite to the Navy.

According to Henry Silcock, chief technology officer for Mikros, “This new project will complete the initial ADEPT engineering efforts on LCS, which began in 2012.† The ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite on LCS will provide a complete and integrated data collection, diagnostics, prognostics, and data transfer solution for four key combat systems on both variants of the LCS.”

“We have been aggressively pursuing opportunities to develop our core ADEPT system for other applications,” stated Mikros President, Tom Meaney. “This award is the direct result of these efforts and is proof that the Navy recognizes the value that ADEPT can deliver to other US Navy programs. Once this project is complete, we expect to begin installing ADSSS on all LCS ships.”
