Ultrasystems Inc. in Irvine said it has been awarded seven new Defense Department contracts that have a total value of $13 million, including options on the major contract.
The names of specific customers and the exact services and products Ultrasystems will provide are classified, said Phillip J. Stevens, the company's chairman and president.
The major contract, signed Monday, is valued at $7.1 million and, if options are exercised, will exceed $11 million. The 11-month contract calls for the training of government personnel in special communications codes, Stevens said.
The remaining contracts, signed in the last two weeks, involve systems engineering, the design and development of software and the integration of hardware and software into operational training systems. The six contracts will be completed within a year, Stevens said.
Ultrasystems is a high-technology engineering and development company involved in a range of defense and space systems projects with emphasis on command, control, communication and intelligence programs and space systems.
