PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mikros Systems Corporation (OTCQB: MKRS), a technology company specializing in electronic systems for advanced maintenance in military, industrial and commercial applications, announced today a new milestone in its ongoing contract with the U.S. Navy to provide advanced maintenance systems for the Littoral Combat Ship.
"We are very pleased to report that our team has just returned from the Naval Station in Mayport, Florida where we completed installation of the Navy's AN/SYM-3 system on another LCS platform," said Lori Ogles, Mikros Program Manager. "Our personnel worked together with the ship's crew and other United States Navy personnel to complete all planned work while the ship was making preparations for Hurricane Dorian. The Mikros team is expected to return later this month to complete final testing."
The SYM-3 system is used by the Navy to provide remote status monitoring, secure networking and data analytics for the key components of the ship's Combat System, including sensors and weapons systems. The system ensures the Combat System is in optimal operating condition, provides real-time feedback on system performance, and analyzes data to predict trends and future failures. The installation was funded under Mikros' existing ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite (ADSSS) IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quality) contract with the United States Navy which also covers installations on multiple future ships. Mikros is also working to apply the same technology to other platforms and Navy legacy equipment.
Ms. Ogles continued, "There are many other Navy systems and ships where Condition-Based Maintenance capabilities are planned, and we are working diligently to apply the SYM-3 system to these and other applications across the Navy. Our systems provide a cyber-secure environment for remote monitoring and predictive analytics to keep the ship and its systems ready to fight."
