Frequency Electronics Awarded $5 Million In Low G DOD Contracts

MITCHEL FIELD, N.Y., July 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frequency Electronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEIM) has been awarded two contracts totaling approximately $5 million in follow-up production requirements for an ongoing Department of Defense (DOD) program previously under development and pilot production contracts at Frequency. Product delivery is required to be completed within 12 to 18 months.

Frequency is providing a quartz and ruggedized rubidium combined product incorporating its proprietary and patented low g-sensitivity technology.  This technology permits time and frequency devices to achieve full performance under high vibration and shock environments. The combination product permits low phase-noise performance by the quartz oscillator and superior long-term stability by the ruggedized rubidium. This exceptional performance is critical to key current DOD operations. Over the past seven years Frequency has invested substantial internal research and development resources in the low g- sensitivity product area. Meaningful returns on that investment are now beginning to be realized.

President and CEO, Martin Bloch, said "These follow-on production contract awards are especially significant to us because this is the first of many U.S. Government and DOD non-satellite development programs to mature from prototype to pre-production and then production-level contracts. Our low g- sensitivity products are unparalleled in performance. The low g oscillators and ruggedized rubidium are making major contributions to DOD secure communication, radar accuracy and applications in other sensors. We expect this product area to be a significant contributor to Frequency's growth."
