DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMRISE CORPORATION (OTCQB:EMRI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced that it has received a $1.2 million order for custom electronic devices to be used in systems to be employed by a military organization. Delivery of the order is expected to begin in mid-2015.
EMRISE Chairman and Chief Executive Carmine T. Oliva noted that the order was received from a longstanding customer for use in an existing, long-term military program by the Company's XCEL Power Systems, Ltd., subsidiary in England.
"This is the second large order for electronic devices to be used in a military application we have announced in the last two weeks," Oliva said. "Together these two large orders have a combined total value of $3.3 million. The most recent order has further strengthened the growing backlog of our Electronic Devices segment, and is another indication of the increasing strength of our base military business."
EMRISE's Electronic Devices segment is focused on supplying custom and semi-custom electronic devices for a broad range of commercial applications, military programs and such important civilian aerospace applications as In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity systems.
