US-based establishment Orbit International's Electronics Group has received a new purchase order from the US Navy.

Details about the nature of the contract have not been disclosed.

The latest $1.06m order follows a $1.23m contract award to the company by the navy in December last year.

Orbit International president and CEO Mitchell Binder said: “This is the second of the two large awards that we were expecting prior to year-end. This award, along with a previously announced award in December 2016, total approximately $2.3m.

“These awards cap off a successful year for our Electronics Group and have well positioned our delivery schedules into 2017.

"Our bid pipeline remains firm and we continue to work with our existing customers on new technology, which we hope will secure us on new critical programmes for the future.”

As part of the new purchase order, the company will begin delivering the completed units in the second quarter and continue through the third quarter of this year.

The previous order requires the company to provide MK 119 gun computer system cabinet (GCSC), an unmanned, environmentally isolated shipboard enclosure to meet the operational systems requirements for the navy.

The enclosure houses standard 19in electronics rack containing processors, cooling and power conditioning equipment that enables processing, electronic devices, and interfacing, and data extraction functions.
