DURHAM, N.C., April 16, 2013 (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 $1.0 million order for radio frequency (RF) systems from a major international marine services supplier of electronic systems for identifying and marking marine shipping channels and marine hazards. Deliveries against the order are expected to begin in late 2013 and continue through 2014.
The order was received from a longstanding customer by the Company's Pascall Electronics Ltd. subsidiary in England. Pascall provides power systems, RF devices and integrated systems and subsystems for a broad range of military and commercial aircraft and other land- and sea-based programs.
EMRISE Chairman and Chief Executive Carmine T. Oliva said that orders for the Company's electronic devices for use in commercial land and marine applications have long resulted in important additions to sales in the Company's Electronic Devices segment.
"These types of commercial orders are complementary to our core business of supplying custom and semi-custom electronic devices for a broad range of air-, land- and sea-based military applications and for a number of important commercial aerospace applications such as In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity systems," Oliva added. He also said these types of commercial orders help increase production volumes, which could have a positive impact on manufacturing efficiency and gross margins.
