Mikros Systems - significant expansion of the Company's wireless network planning activity with the U.S. Navy

Mikros Systems
: 09 March, 2008  (New Product)
Under the SBIR program, the Navy has funded Mikros and subcontractor Mobilisa, Inc. (Port Townsend, WA) to develop a Shipboard Wireless Network Design Tool, designated AIRchitect-EMC. This tool is a result of a joint software development between Mobilisa and Mikros over the past several years.
The Navy eventually plans to install wireless networks on 34 L-class amphibious ships. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) has funded a pilot program, known as Classified Wireless Network for Embarked Forces, to install networks on the first two ships of the class. The proposed Mikros program will use the AIRchitect-EMC software to support wireless network design and installation for the lead LHD, a very large amphibious assault ship for Marine Corps missions. Mikros engineers visited one LHD ship in San Diego in January 2008 and plan another pre-install survey in May. Mikros will work closely with the Navy's wireless network experts in Charleston, South Carolina and San Diego, California.

The Company anticipates that new opportunities for applications using AIRchitect-EMC to design wireless networks for different ship classes, including other amphibious ships and aircraft carriers, will be increasing in the coming months. The Company is currently negotiating a similar program for one of the new Navy aircraft carriers.
