Those unmanned aerial vehicles soaring above war zones and border areas don’t help authorities much without a robust way to get pictures and other data back to the ground.

Part of that solution is coming from AML Communications Inc. (based in Camarillo, Calif.), which said it has received a $2.2 million order from the Department of Defense for integrated microwave assemblies for UAVs.

AML has developed the assemblies exclusively for a specific UAV program and will be the sole source supplier of those components for that program.

“The UAV market represents a growth opportunity for AML. Pentagon reports indicate that unmanned aircraft such as Predators, Global Hawks, Shadows and Ravens fill important military needs in Iraq and Afghanistan, and are forecasted to be an important part of our nation’s military strategy for the foreseeable future,” said AML President and CEO Jacob Inbar. “The fact that AML was selected as a sole source provider under this order demonstrates our reputation for high performance components and outstanding quality.”
