Herley Industries Inc., a Lancaster manufacturer, said today it received a contract order worth about $1.4 million to produce microwave modules for aircraft radar.

The contract, from an international customer that was not identified, is for the F-16A/B Fighting Falcon jet. This will be the third microwave module, which is used as a replacement on the Falcon.

The F-16 is known for its maneuverability and the distance it can fly to reach its target, engage in combat and return to base.

Herley uses microwave technology to make products for the defense, aerospace and medical industries.
