CPS Technologies Corporation Announces Contract With Raytheon Corporation

NORTON, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - CPS Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: CPSH) announced today that it has been awarded a $600 thousand subcontract from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems to produce a metal-matrix composite cold plate as part of the U.S. Navy's next-generation integrated Air and Mission Defense Radar (AMDR) Program. This component, to be delivered in the third and fourth quarters of 2014, will support the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) Phase of Raytheon's contract with the U.S. Navy's for the AMDR Program.

In 2013 Raytheon was awarded a $385 million contract for the EMD phase of the AMDR Program. The contract includes options which, if exercised by Raytheon, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to over $1.6 billion. CPS expects its involvement with the EMD Phase will result in production opportunities during the future production phases of the AMDR Program.

"This contract validates the technological advantage of integrating high performance inserts in our metal matrix composites. It is also a great example of our ability to work successfully with customers over an extended period of time in the design phase of major programs," said Grant Bennett, President and Chief Executive Officer.
