USCG Informed Aura Systems Of Renewed Contract To Support The VIPER Power Solution Used In Its 45-Foot RB-M Patrol Boats

Redondo Beach CA June 26, 2014 - Aura Systems, Inc. announced today that the US Coast Guard (USCG) informed the Company that its support contract with Aura will shortly be renewed. This support contract is to provide service and support for the VIPER systems installed on the USCG patrol boats. The USCG RB-M response boats now in production use dual AuraGen/VIPER systems, to provide both AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) power from engine idle to redline. The 45-foot RB-M was designed to meet Coast Guard mission requirements for search and rescue; ports, waterways, and coastal security; drug interdiction; and migrant interdiction.
“We have now shipped hundreds of VIPER systems to the US Coast Guard under the previously announced program and we are starting to get interest in marine applications of the VIPER mobile power solution from other countries.”
In addition to the USCG Aura’s VIPER mobile power solution are also installed on boats operated by the USN, RN and the Singapore Navy. Recently the British Royal Navy ship HMS Echo involved in the search for Malaysia Airline Flight 370 has with it the survey boat SMB Sapphire with two AuraGen VIPER systems.
Mr. Melvin Gagerman, Aura’s CEO, said, “We have now shipped hundreds of VIPER systems to the US Coast Guard under the previously announced program and we are starting to get interest in marine applications of the VIPER mobile power solution from other countries.”
