COM DEV USA awarded contract to provide UHF equipment

EL SEGUNDO, CA, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - COM DEV USA, LLC, a subsidiary of COM DEV International Ltd. (TSX: CDV), today announced that it has been awarded a contract valued in excess of US$6 million to provide UHF passive microwave equipment for a satellite payload. The equipment will be similar to that which COM DEV USA is supplying under a previous contract awarded by the same customer in 2009.  Design and production work will be performed at COM DEV USA's manufacturing facility in El Segundo, California with delivery scheduled by the end of calendar 2011.

Earlier today, COM DEV International announced a separate contract under which its International Products division will provide equipment for the same satellite.

"We are very pleased to see two divisions of our organization win contracts on the same spacecraft," said Michael Pley, Interim CEO of COM DEV International.  "Both had to compete separately for the business, and their joint success demonstrates the leadership each enjoys in its respective market, as well as the synergies available to us from our US expansion strategy."
