Navitas Systems Awarded Major Contract By US Navy

Selected as Provider of Circuit Card Assemblies via $11 Million IDIQ


Woodridge, IL –March 23, 2015 – Navitas Systems LLC (www.navitassys.com), a leading provider of energy-enabled system solutions, energy storage products, and power electronics for commercial, industrial and government/military customers, has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (“IDIQ”) contract by the Department of the Navy, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division.

Navitas’ award by the Naval Surface Warfare Center to manufacture, test, inspect, package and deliver Circuit Card Assemblies (CCA’s) illustrates the company’s ability to make complicated mission-critical designs for heavy stress environments.  The five-year IDIQ is valued at $11 Million, with a focus on manufacturing and delivering printed circuit boards for weapons systems, including those aboard Navy helicopters and various ground and air activities in support of the United States Navy. Through this IDIQ, Navitas will be the provider of six types of circuit cards.

“As a longstanding supplier to the Navy, we are honored and humbled to have been selected as an awardee by Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division to produce these mission-critical components. The quality, cost and lead time of the Navitas solution has helped us achieve this major award from the Crane Division,” said Navitas Systems’ President Mil Ovan.

With NSWC’s expertise in the field of electronic components and sensor systems, they are able to service other agencies and branches of the military including Marine expeditionary units, government intelligence agencies, as well as homeland security.

“With its commitment to supporting the warfighter, Navy Crane’s strategic missions directly contribute to fleet readiness and self-supportability, ensuring that systems are reliable and available when needed most,” stated Navitas Electronics General Manager Samer ElShafei. “At Navitas we are focused on delivering mission critical components that can maintain integrity during severe duty vibration which the electronics boards must endure, and then tie that to these same robustness requirements we leverage in the design of our battery management system electronics for military, commercial, and industrial customers”, ElShafei concluded.

Navitas Systems will be an exhibitor at the upcoming “Buy Indiana” trade show, held at the French Lick Resort & Casino on March 31st, 2015.  The Buy Indiana show spotlights products from key suppliers to Navy Crane engineers and purchasing managers.
