Litronic Inc. of Irvine, Calif., said it has obtained a $500,000 order from the Department of Defense's Financial Management Service for a digital authentication system based on smart cards.

The contract follows one for $325,000 announced last month by Datakey Inc. of Minneapolis from a U.S. government agency that was not disclosed for security reasons. Datakey is supplying 10,000 microprocessor chips with its Cryptographic Card Operating System.
