REDONDO BEACH, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Aura Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: AUSI) announced today that the U.S.C.G informed the Company that its support contract with Aura will shortly be renewed. This support contract is to provide service and support for the VIPER systems installed on the U.S.C.G patrol boats. The U.S.C.G RB-M response boats now in production use dual AuraGen/VIPER systems, to provide both AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) power from engine idle to redline. The 45-foot RB-M was designed to meet Coast Guard mission requirements for search and rescue; ports, waterways, and coastal security; drug interdiction; and migrant interdiction.
In addition to the U.S.C.G Aura’s VIPER mobile power solution are also installed on boats operated by the U.S.N, U.K Royal Navy and the Singapore Navy. Recently the British Royal Navy ship HMS Echo involved in the search for Malaysia Airline Flight 370 has with it the survey boat SMB Sapphire with two AuraGen VIPER systems.
Mr. Melvin Gagerman, Aura’s CEO, said, “We have now shipped hundreds of VIPER systems to the U.S. Coast Guard under the previously announced program and we are starting to get interest in marine applications of the VIPER mobile power solution from other countries.”
