EMRISE Receives $1.1 Million Production Order for RF Switching Subsystems to Be Used in Satellite Communications Network

EMRISE CORPORATION (NYSE Arca: ERI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced that it has received a follow-on $1.1 million production order for a number of radio frequency (RF) switching subsystems to be used in satellite communications ground stations for the U.S. military. The order was received from a large, multinational communication systems integrator by EMRISE’s Advanced Control Components, Inc. (ACC) subsidiary. Shipment of the order to this longstanding EMRISE customer is expected to begin in this year’s fourth quarter and is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2010.

EMRISE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva said receipt of this production order follows several development orders received by ACC over the course of two years of developing and qualifying the equipment. He also noted that the Company believes it could receive a number of additional orders for these RF switching subsystems in the future.

“This contract win is yet another for high-value, RF subsystems secured by ACC over the last few years,” Oliva added. “Being selected for these programs has been due in large part to the efforts of ACC’s highly skilled engineering organization.

“In addition to the broad range of high-quality devices and components developed by EMRISE engineers in all of our operations, our engineering teams throughout the Company are repeatedly demonstrating their expertise at using our device and component-level products to develop complex solutions to meet the demanding requirements of our customers’ commercial and military business,” Oliva said.

ACC develops and supplies a wide variety of RF and microwave devices and subsystems for use in a number of military, government and commercial applications, including satellite communications, weather satellites, radar systems, flight simulators and radio controlled improvised explosive device (RCIED) jamming systems.
