Ultra Electronics announces that its Communication and Integrated Systems (CIS)

business, based in Greenford, UK, has been awarded a £14m contract extension to its
End Cryptographic Unit Replacement Programme (ECURP).

Under ECURP Ultra is providing the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) with a high grade
cryptographic capability which supports modern modes and key delivery whilst being
interoperable with legacy devices to maintain operational availability. The devices are
software definable making them compatible with future emerging requirements.

This contract extension for the integration & installation phase of the programme will
see Ultra manage the roll-out and deployment of this critical national capability. This
will encompass delivering and integrating cryptographic units into platforms, systems
and sites across the UK MoD's inventory and estate.

Rakesh Sharma, Chief Executive of Ultra, commented:
"The award of the system integration contract to Ultra ensures that the UK MoD will
realise the early benefits of a modern high grade cryptographic estate. It recognises
Ultra's extensive capability in system integration and management of complex
equipment roll-out programmes. This is a further example of Ultra delivering its
strategies for growth by winning and expanding its position on a long-term
programme."

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
