Herley Industries Inc. announced that its Micro Systems subsidiary located in Fort Walton Beach, FL, has been awarded production orders totaling $2.8 M on two long-term production contracts.

A major defense prime contractor has ordered target control transponders for a total of 17 full scale aerial target drones under a contract option. Deliveries on the order commence in March 2009 and continue for a year, with additional orders expected to follow.

The US Navy has ordered 104 units of their DSQ-50A Scoring Sensor Unit used for measuring miss distances in weapons testing. The order represents the first production order on a five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract.

Wayne Armstrong, Micro Systems' president, stated, "These contract awards are good examples of the type of work that is the core of our business. Both products are the result of extensive development efforts that have now transitioned to production programs that run for many years. Our focus on timely deliveries of quality products at fair prices results in long term partnerships with our customers."
