Over the last 18 months, Mikros Systems has announced more than $80 million in Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts with the U.S. Navy. Additionally, in August, Mikros announced a Memorandum of Understanding with Elliott-Lewis Corporation to offer military-grade, cybersecure technology to enable remote monitoring and predictive maintenance for commercial building management.
