EL SEGUNDO, CA, Nov. 11 /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$7 million to provide passive microwave equipment for a US Government space program. This contract covers work on the fourth spacecraft in a multiple-satellite constellation, and follows a contract announced last month relating to the third spacecraft in the same program. Design and production work will be performed at COM DEV USA's manufacturing facility in El Segundo, California with delivery scheduled for the middle of fiscal 2011.
