Aura Systems Inc. has announced new contracts for its mobile Viper power systems from Israeli military use and a U.S. Coast Guard support contract renewal.

AuraGen/VIPER systems are axial flux induction generators that provide both AC and DC power -- from engine idle to redline.

Aura said the two new contracts received are from Israeli defense contractors for delivery of numerous VIPER systems over the next few months. Some of the systems will be used by the Israeli Defense Force.

The value of the contracts is about $500,000.00.

"We have been shipping small quantities to Israel over the last several years and we are beginning to see increase demand from Israeli companies," said Melvin Gagerman, Aura's chief executive officer. "We are in discussions with the IDF directly and other contractors for additional programs."

The impending U.S. Coast Guard contract renewal is for continued support of Viper systems installed on Coast Guard RB-M patrol boats used for search and rescue; ports, waterways, and coastal security; drug interdiction; and migrant interdiction.

"We have now shipped hundreds of Viper systems to the U.S. 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," Gagerman said.
