Arotech to manufacture CESAS II PIK

20th August 2015 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Space and Naval Warfare Center (SPAWAR) Atlantic has awarded a contract to Arotech for the manufacture and integration of 12 Communication Emitter Sensing and Attacking System (CESAS) II Platform Integration Kits (PIK), the company announced on 19 August. 

The contract is valued at $6.7 million and will be executed by Arotech's North American Power System division, which includes UEC Electronics.

CESAS is a high-power, ground-mobile electronic attack asset that provides US Marine Corps commanders the ability to disrupt, deny and detect enemy communication.

The contract was awarded following the successful completion of prototype performance and environmental testing of the CESAS II PIK by the US government.

Mark Matthews, CEO, UEC Electronics, said: ‘UEC Electronics has been supporting the SPAWAR intelligence group for more than 10 years and is pleased with the most recent contract award. The DoD is focused on cost savings. Our automated manufacturing processes, coupled with our history of quality products and on-time delivery, make us an ideal provider for this type of mission critical system.’ 

Steven Esses, president and CEO, Arotech, said: ‘The award of this contract is a testament to our team and performance of our product. We are excited about the initial opportunity and are optimistic that this award could lead to the procurement of additional units in the future.’
