DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMRISE CORPORATION(OTCQB:EMRI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced that it has received an aggregate of $1.2 million in orders from three customers for electronic devices for use in In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFE&C) systems to be installed in commercial aircraft. This group of orders includes a $500,000 order from its longest standing customer in the IFE&C market.
Ranging in size from $320,000 to $380,000 to $500,000, the three orders were received by the Company's Pascall Electronics Ltd. subsidiary in England. Shipments of the orders are expected to commence early next year and be completed by the end of 2014.
EMRISE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva said the industry-wide demand for advanced IFE&C systems from domestic and international carriers continues to be strong. He noted that the Company continues to receive a steady stream of orders in a range of sizes for this expanding market, which is having a positive impact on the size of the Company's backlog.
The shipment of new aircraft and the refurbishment of existing aircraft combined with the need to create additional revenue sources that improve a passenger's air travel experience are driving the global airline industry's increasing demand for new multimedia IFE&C systems.
"We believe the demand for IFE&C systems is also being favorably impacted by industry forecasts for increases in future aircraft deliveries," Oliva added. "As a supplier to major OEMs that provide advanced IFE&C systems to airlines, we are benefiting from that demand."
