Filtronic, the AIM listed designer and manufacturer of products, has secured a £1 million contract with a new major UK defence customer.
The contract will see the Leeds-based company supply battlefield radio communications hardware.
The contract is for the design and supply of field units over a 12-month period with final product delivery expected to commence in the second half of CY2021.
It will enable Filtronic to demonstrate the ability to provide turnkey Radio Frequency (RF) communication solutions for critical defence programmes.
Filtronic will develop and validate a prototype solution which will then transition into low volume manufacturing.
“We are delighted to have secured this significant new order as it underlines the customer’s confidence in our ability to deliver this type of challenging and complex programme,” said CEO Richard Gibbs.
“With our deep understanding of RF communication and our in-house design and manufacturing facility, it is pleasing to start the calendar year with a contract win for both a new product and new customer.
“Filtronic is well positioned to win further UK defence contracts.”
