The equipment to be delivered includes multi-beam sonar systems and the associated handling equipment, as well as seismic source controller systems. 

"We expect all these orders to be completed and delivered in our current fiscal year. We believe these orders indicate the strength in military and exploration markets and we expect further orders in the near future," said Rob Capps, president and CEO of MIND Technology.
