The $3.7 million contract was announced on 6 February.
The company will produce 140 AFCS control panels, which will be fitted on the coast guard's MH-65E helicopters.
The panels are part of a planned initiative to improve the reliability of the AFCS.
Delivery of the panels is planned to begin in July 2017, with about three panels delivered per month.
