Manufacturer amplifiers and integrated assemblies for the defense industry, receives $220,000 order for microwave amplifiers to be deployed in a Northrop Grumman Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Program.



AML Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: AMLJ), a designer, manufacturer and marketer of amplifiers and integrated assemblies for the defense industry, announced it has received a pre-production order in the amount of $220,000 for microwave amplifiers to be deployed in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, also known as UAVs. Specifically, the AML amplifiers will be deployed in the STARLite Synthetic Aperture Radar, part of Northrop Grumman’s Extended Range/Multiple Purpose Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Program. Earlier this year, AML successfully delivered developmental units for this program.

“The UAV market represents a growth opportunity for AML. A few months ago we announced a $2.2 million order for products deployed in another UAV Program. These orders bode well for our long-term strategy to deliver microwave solutions to the UAV marketplace. Pentagon reports indicate that unmanned aircraft such as Predators, Global Hawks, Shadows and Ravens fill important military needs, and are forecasted to be a critical part of our nation’s military strategy for the foreseeable future,” said Jacob Inbar, AML’s President and CEO.
