CAMBRIDGE, ON, March 15 /CNW/ - COM DEV International Ltd. (TSX:CDV), a leading manufacturer of space hardware subsystems, today announced that it has been awarded an authorization to proceed (ATP) to provide switches, filters and multiplexers for a commercial communications satellite.

The Company expects to complete work on the contract within the first half of calendar 2011 at its facility in Cambridge, Ontario.
