LANCASTER, Pa., Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Micro Systems Inc. has received $3 million in contracts from the U.S. Navy to modify aerial target ground control stations and airborne avionics.
Under the contracts, Micro Systems, a Florida subsidiary of Herley Industries Inc., will change the operating frequency and update their ground control station hardware to transition it for use through laptop computers, replacing aging custom-designed target and master control consoles.
The change in operating frequency is directed at minimizing interference issues that are sometimes encountered with the existing systems, the company said.
"We are pleased to see the Navy move forward with these changes," Micro Systems President Wayne Armstrong said. "We have been working together for some time now to formulate several improvements and feel that the changes we are making will significantly extend the service life of their systems and improve performance."
Additional details were not disclosed.
Herley Industries, based in Pennsylvania, is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of microwave technology solutions for the defense, aerospace and medical industries worldwide.
