Melbourne communications integrator Redflex Communications Systems has won a $15.4 million deal with avionics manufacturer Lockheed Martin.

ASX-listed Redflex Group said in a statement that its subsidiary, Redflex Communications Systems, was working with US-based Lockheed Martin on a flight service station project.

"Redflex Communications Systems has received orders to date from Lockheed Martin on this project to the value of $15.4 million," Redflex Group directors said in the statement.

Lockheed Martin would use Redflex' Switchplus technology to support its Flight Service Station of the Twenty-First century (FS21) project for the US' Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), it said.

"The majority of this work is scheduled to be performed in 2005," the directors said.

Further details of the contract would be filed with the ASX once the balance of the contract had been negotiated, they added.

Switchplus was Redflex Communications Systems' core product. It was used in air traffic control, military operations centres and other command and control and public safety applications worldwide, the statement said.

Redflex Communications Systems has facilities in Melbourne and the US. Its systems are used by the Australian army, civil aviation, NSW State Rail and in airports in Dubai, Fiji, Mauritius and Bahrain.

Another company in Redflex Group, digital camera maker Redflex Traffic Systems, has signed millions of dollars in US and other international contracts for red light cameras in recent years.

Redflex Communications Systems (RCS) complements Redflex Traffic Systems. Both companies do their own systems engineering, system integration and R&D.
