PRINCETON, N.J., July 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mikros Systems Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: MKRS), announced today the successful demonstration of their Adaptive Diagnostic Electronic Portable Test set (ADEPT) at the US Coast Guard Training Center in Petaluma, California.  The demonstration took place on Tuesday, July 20, and Wednesday, July 21. 

Attendees from the US Navy and Coast Guard saw live demonstrations of ADEPT system and its ability to perform maintenance on the TRS-3D radar.   The TRS-3D radar is the main air surveillance radar on the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), the latest surface combatant being fielded by the US Navy.  There are two LCS class ships in service and the Navy plans a fleet of approximately 55 ships.  Mikros engineers also demonstrated the remote operation and distance support capabilities of ADEPT. 

Mikros President Tom Meaney remarked, "This is an important milestone for the ADEPT program.  The distance support capabilities of ADEPT fit well with the maintenance plans for the Littoral Combat Ship and other programs.  As we continue to fulfill our $26 million IDIQ contract by fielding ADEPT Units in Navy cruisers and destroyers, important Navy and other defense personnel are experiencing first-hand the efficiencies and benefits of our ADEPT system.  As a result of our ability to improve mission readiness and the performance of important shipboard electronic systems, we expect other programs and even other branches of the service to take notice.  We continue to believe that ADEPT will be a huge program for us for many years to come."
