LaBarge Awarded $2.6 Million Contract for MESA Advanced Military Radar System

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LaBarge, Inc. (AMEX: LB) has been awarded a $2.6 million contract from Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) to continue to provide electronic subsystems for the MESA (Multi-role Electronically Scanned Array) radar system.

The MESA radar is an advanced airborne surveillance radar system used in military aircraft with airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) platforms. Currently flying in the next-generation 737-700 series aircraft produced by The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA), the radar is mounted atop the fuselage and has a long detection range with a 360-degree electronic scan that can simultaneously track air and sea targets, covering the entire operational area with an integrated identification friend or foe (IFF) mode. The MESA radar allows the AEW&C aircraft to operate farther back from the battle lines while it detects and tracks targets in high threat areas.

Production on the contract is expected to begin in September 2009 and continue through February 2010 at LaBarge's Huntsville, Ark., facility. LaBarge is a Northrop Grumman Preferred Supplier and has been a member of the MESA production team since 2002.

LaBarge, Inc. is a broad-based provider of electronics to technology-driven companies in diverse markets. The Company provides its customers with sophisticated electronic and electromechanical products through contract design and manufacturing services. Headquartered in St. Louis, LaBarge has operations in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin. The Company's Web site may be accessed at http://www.labarge.com.
