Dublin, California, UNITED STATES


DUBLIN, Calif., Dec. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giga-tronics Incorporated (OTCQB: GIGA) (the “Company”) today announced that it has received three customer orders totaling $2.0 million.

Two of the orders totaling $1.5 million were for our Radar/EW test systems. The first order, for our recently introduced COMPASS platform, was from a national laboratory supporting the development of an airborne radar platform for the US Army, a new branch of the armed forces for Giga-tronics. The second order was for our Radar Threat Generation System from a well-known prime contractor in direct support of advanced systems development for fifth generation fighter aircraft.
  
A third order totaling $480,000 for additional inventory of our Microsource digital YIG oscillators was received from a prime contractor as a follow-on order supporting a critical missile defense program.

John Regazzi, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said, “We are very pleased to report these three orders which, in large part, reflect the interest we are seeing in our Radar/EW threat emulation products across a growing list of customers and applications. We expect to ship the two Radar/EW orders during our third quarter of fiscal 2021 which ends December 26, 2020. Our Microsource filter division continues to be a steady and predictable performer for us, and we expect the revenue from the $480,000 order to be recognized over the course of calendar year 2021.”
