Quintron Gets Order for NASA Comm Equipment

by

Safety and security equipment maker Quintron Systems of Santa Maria, Calif., recently received two orders from NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi worth a combined $350,000 for multichannel communications equipment used in rocket engine test environments and other hazardous areas.

Quintron said in a press release the orders were placed under a $4.1 million indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract Stennis awarded in 2008 for the company’s DICES Subsystem Multiplexer (Sub-MUX) equipment. Quintron has booked $1.35 million in orders under the contract to date.

The first of the two new orders includes additional Sub-MUX equipment for the A1 Test Stand at Stennis and 11 more user stations. The second order calls for Sub-MUX equipment for three test facilities at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

The new orders follow an initial delivery to Stennis that included nine Sub-MUX chassis, 162 hazardous-duty wall-mounted user stations and 83 control room rack-mounted user stations.
