Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp Announces First Quarter Results

CRAFT “Communications/Navigation (COMM/NAV) Radio Frequency (RF) Avionics Flight line Tester”) (AN/USM-708 and AN/USM-719) with the U.S. Navy

In March 2012, the U.S. Navy placed a temporary hold on CRAFT 708 production shipments to correct issues discovered in prior CRAFT 719 deliveries and incorporate the final AIMS approved software configuration which includes several product enhancements. Correcting these issues required an extensive upgrade to our automated and manual test procedures which has taken several months to complete and validate with the Navy. Over the last month, the Company has delivered a number of upgraded CRAFT 719 units to the Navy and CRAFT 708 units to the U.S. Coast Guard and the units are performing to specification. Absent any unexpected issues, the Company expects to secure Navy approval to resume full-rate CRAFT production in September 2012. The Company has approximately $12.4 million in orders for this program. Due to the unique nature of the CRAFT product, the Company expects to generate substantial follow-on business with the Navy and other military customers both domestically and overseas.

TS-4530 IFF test set with the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (continued)

The TS-4530A program is complete from a design standpoint but the Army has withheld a production release pending the completion of several major milestones. In August 2012 the Company successfully completed the U.S. Army production assurance review. In September, this product is scheduled to undergo final regression testing by the Department of Defense (DoD) AIMS Program Office to approve its TS-4530A Flight Line Test Set authorizing its use for Mark XIIA IFF (“Identification Friend and Foe”), Mode S (ELS/EHS/ADS-B) and TCAS systems. Once final AIMS approval is secured, TIC and the U.S. Army will work together to secure timing on a full production release for this program. On August 14, 2012, the U.S. Army released an order for 30 TS-4530A low rate initial production (“LRIP”) Kits. The Company hopes to secure the production release early in the third quarter of the current fiscal year. The TS-4530A program is a critical program with almost $20 million of booked production orders, and up to $20 million of potential additional orders, which will help drive TIC’s revenues growth and profitability.
