Mitec begins delivery of new military amplifier line

MONTREAL, Oct. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Mitec Telecom Inc. ("Mitec") (TSX: MTM), a leading designer and manufacturer of mobile wireless, fixed wireless, broadcast and satellite components, announced today that it has begun deliveries of a new high-powered pulse amplifier designed for a U.S. military customer as part of a large communications program. The initial deliveries are valued at over $400,000 and involve the Corporation's Keragis subsidiary. Military programs of this type typically last for a significant period of time and generate predictable, high-margin revenue.

"These deliveries are result of a long and complex qualification process. We are now well positioned for a long-term roll out," said Mitec's President and CEO, Dan Piergentili. "We are also expecting orders from additional divisions of the U.S. Department of Defense and other military-focused customers. I am encouraged by the strong interest this technology is attracting and by the backlog of opportunities we are seeing now that our first orders have been delivered."

Keragis' products enable extremely powerful amplifiers to be used in very compact structures. They have been qualified by governments and large military systems integrators for use in state-of-the-art applications that require high efficiency amplifiers for smaller and lighter footprints.

Please note: Due to confidentiality provisions, Mitec is generally not able to disclose the names of its major customers or the financial data related to sales transactions.
