Emrise receives $1M orders for Electronic Devices for Commercial Aircraft
Emrise Corporation a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced it has received more than $1.0 million in additional orders for electronic devices for commercial aircraft cockpits from a major international systems integrator based in Europe. Shipments are scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2008, and this order will ensure continuity of shipments for this program through 2009.
Emrise President and Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva said: “We continue to see growing strength in orders for electronics devices and subsystems for commercial aircraft, not only for cockpit avionics but also for in-flight entertainment applications.” Oliva also said that the European systems integrator is a continuing customer that purchases products for both commercial and military aircraft programs.
The order was received by the Company’s Pascall Electronics Ltd. subsidiary, located in England. Pascall provides power systems, RF devices and integrated subsystems for a broad range of military and commercial aircraft and other land and sea-based programs.
Oliva continued: “These orders add to our growing backlog and are a result of our strategic plan to broaden our revenue base with commercial aircraft business. This market segment involves high-volume programs to outfit large commercial airliners, regional jets, light air taxi jets, business jets and smaller private aircraft with a range of electronic devices and subsystems.”
