PRINCETON, N.J., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mikros Systems Corporation , announced today that it will participate in the U.S. Navy's 8th SBIR Opportunity Forum, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA beginning June 2nd and ending June 4th. The theme of this year's forum is "Transitioning Technology to the Fleet" and Mikros will be showcasing its test automation and wireless network programs, both funded under the SBIR program.
The Opportunity Forum features presentations and exhibits by 200 small businesses, and provides a key opportunity for Navy and prime contractor acquisition personnel and program managers to develop relationships with small businesses that offer innovative technologies to complement their systems capabilities.
"We have worked successfully with major Navy prime contractors to transition our ADEPT test automation products to the Fleet," said Marc Dalby, Director of Program Development at Mikros. "At the forum this year, we will be focusing on our AIRchitect-EMC wireless network design tool, which has been well received by the Navy. We expect that AIRchitect-EMC will be applied more broadly as the Navy continues to expand wireless network deployments."
The Navy Opportunity Forum process provides increased business acumen, quality contacts, information, and tools that help companies transition their SBIR technologies to viable commercial products. According to the forum organizers, more than 40 companies have each achieved in excess of $1,000,000 in sales and/or investments during the 18-month period following the 2005 and 2006 Opportunity Forums.
