Mikros Systems has received a $2.5 million follow-on contract from the US Navy to continue to develop its condition-based maintenance systems for the navy's MK 99 fire control system, the company announced on 9 July.

Mikros is developing a new variant of its Adaptive Diagnostic Electronic Portable Testset Distance Support Sensor Suite (ADSSS) system, an advanced network-based remote monitoring and maintenance system. The ADSSS system, which collects performance data in real-time and uses it to detect and predict failures, is known as AN/SYM-3 by the navy.

The AN/SYM-3 is used on the navy's littoral combat ship to monitor two other radars and combat system elements. The new variant of the SYM-3, which will monitor the director in the MK 99 system, has been in development since 2017. The new contract covers continued development, at-sea testing and validation of the system.
