The order booking will be recorded in the company's fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and is expected to be delivered over the next 18 months.

"The program will be built on our best-in class SuperTrakTM linear motion technology. We look forward to delivering on this important project, and the opportunity to expand this program in the future."
