Hauppauge-based Orbit International Corp. said this week it has received $2.6 million in new orders from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Pentagon.

The FAA ordered $1.7 million in air traffic control system keyboards; and the Army and Navy, for a cooperative radar transponder program, ordered $890,000 in remote control units.

Orbit will begin deliveries for both orders by this fall.

“Our keyboards play a key role in the state-of-the-art replacement program for the FAA in the management of commercial aviation terminal airspace," Sam Berhumoglu, sales vice president for the Orbit Instrument Division, said in a prepared statement.

Berhumoglu said Orbit has supplied keyboards for the FAA replacement program since 2000 and expects another new, large keyboard order by the end of the year. He said Orbit was told to expect further orders for the Army and Navy transponder system as well.

Shares of Orbit were down 1 cent by midafternoon Wednesday to $4.38. The stock has a 52-week range of $3.07-$5.35.
