SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Giga-tronics, Inc. dba Gresham Worldwide (OTCQB: GIGA) (“Gresham Worldwide”), a provider of purpose-built electronic technology solutions for defense and other mission critical applications, today announced its subsidiary, Microphase Corporation (“Microphase”), has received orders for RF filters from a major strategic defense contractor with an aggregate value of $5.4 million. Microphase technology will be used as part of a platform designed to counter improvised explosive devices to protect troops in the U.S. military.
Microphase anticipates initial deliveries to begin in the first quarter of 2024 with the balance delivered throughout calendar year 2024. This production order builds on eight years of close collaboration with this strategic customer to develop and refine these RF components. Microphase expects to receive at least one additional production order for the RF filters late in 2024.
Jonathan Read, CEO of Gresham Worldwide, Microphase’s parent, stated, “These orders provide further validation of Gresham Worldwide’s strategic focus on delivering purpose-built solutions for mission critical requirements that build enduring customer relationships.

Timothy Long, COO of Gresham Worldwide and CEO of Microphase, added, “We are well-positioned with the workforce, equipment, and facilities to satisfy these orders on schedule. This business builds on our proven RF filter technology platform.
