HUDSON, N.H., April 1 (UPI) -- U.S. company Micronetics Inc. has received a follow-on contract for its microwave subassembly technologies for use in radio-frequency jamming technologies.
Micronetics said its New Jersey-based subsidiary Microwave Concepts was awarded the contract from an unnamed original equipment manufacturer. Under the $5 million deal, Micro-Con will deliver its highly integrated microwave subassemblies used in the production of a complex RF jamming system.
The RF jammers are widely used by the U.S. military to counter threats from improvised explosive devices, among other defense and homeland security applications.
"We are proud of our Micro-Con microwave subsystems division's continuing success and recognition as a premier supplier of high-performance subsystems to the electronic-warfare marketplace," David Robbins, Micronetics chief executive, in a statement.
"This large order is a testament to the continuing strong end-customer demand for these important products."
