RADA Secures $4.7 Million Design Contract For Aircraft Upgrade Program In South America

NETANYA, Israel, Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq:RADA) announced that it has signed a contract for avionics installation design, valued at over $4.7 million. This contract is part of an upgrade program for fighter aircraft run by a South American customer, a program for which RADA also supplies various avionics units. Under this contract, RADA will design the installation of all upgraded units in the aircraft as well as support the customer in the implementation of these upgrades.

This contract, which will be carried out during 2011 and 2012, introduces potential future business opportunities for RADA as the customer will also need to purchase installation kits, which RADA produces.

Zvika Alon, RADA CEO, commented: "This contract contributes significantly to our 2010 backlog, serving as a foundation for prolonged growth in the coming years. Likewise, we are pleased with the continued trust our South America customers put in RADA."

Alon added: "In executing this contract, we will be working closely with local companies as well as our customers which, we believe, will enhance our local visibility and improve our relations with our key clients there. This way of doing business has proven its effectiveness for RADA in the past in both South America as well as other locations."
