Orbit International’s Electronics Group has secured a contract to provide MK 119 gun computer system cabinet (GCSC) for the US Navy. 

Valued at approximately $1.23m, the new contract was awarded by the US Government Procurement Agency and also has the scope for acquisition of spare parts.

Orbit International president and CEO Mitchell Binder said: “This is the first of two large awards that we were expecting before year-end.

“It also continues the significant momentum of orders that have been received by our Electronics Group since the beginning of 2016, which has well-positioned our delivery schedules for the second half of 2016.

“We expect this will continue into the first half of 2017. We continue to carefully manage our costs and strive for improving our revenue levels in order to take advantage of our operating leverage to further improve our operating performance.”

The cabinets will be manufactured at Orbit International’s Integrated Combat Systems (ICS) division in Louisville, Kentucky, US.
