Orbit International Corp. (Hauppauge, NY) announced that its power unit segment, Behlman Electronics Inc. (Hauppaugen, NY), has received a $250,000 order from the United States Navy for Roll Resolvers used on the F/A-18 Forward Looking Infrared Radar (FLIR) System. The order includes an option to purchase an additional $250,000 Roll Resolvers that the company expects the US Navy to exercise within 30 days. Deliveries under this contract are expected in the first and second quarters of 2004.
Orbit President and CEO Dennis Sunshine commented, "Behlman continues to receive new orders because of its success in reverse engineering old components for United States Navy Aircraft. In addition, Behlman has also supplied a Roll Resolver and two other power modules directly to the US Navy in support of the F/A-18 FLIR System. Total awards to our company in the last 24 months have exceeded $5 million on this program. Behlman continues to be an excellent source of supply to the US Navy and we are encouraged by the business potential related to our participation in this program."
