Deliveries are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2015 and be completed in the third quarter of 2015. Behlman has received orders for this application since 1999 and expects to receive additional orders for these units through at least 2016.
Orbit's Electronics Group, through its Integrated Combat Systems, Inc. ("ICS") subsidiary, received a follow-on production order from a U.S Naval Procurement Agency valued at approximately $220,000 for its MK 110 Signal Data Converter ("SDC").

Our bid and proposal pipeline continues to grow and although timing is always an uncertainty, we are hopeful that some additional legacy awards will be received before the end of the current third quarter which should well position our 2015 delivery schedules."
