VANCOUVER, Jan. 9, 2017 /CNW/ - Norsat International Inc. ("Norsat" or the "Company") (TSX: NII and NYSE MKT: NSAT), a provider of unique and customized communication solutions for remote and challenging applications, today announced that it has received an approximate $3.3 million order for its GLOBETREKKER 2.0 portable satellite terminals from a U.S. Combat Support Agency supporting the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community.
The GLOBETrekker is an intelligent fly-away satellite terminal with unsurpassed reliability, advanced auto-acquire technology, and a flexible deployment platform. A simple one touch interface and the LinkControl™ software allow for automatic satellite acquisition so less experienced operators can easily use the system while multi-tasking on other field operations setup tasks. These military-grade, auto-acquire terminals will provide:
- Dual-band (X-band and KU-band) connectivity to ensure access worldwide depending on the satellite and bandwidth available in the area of deployment
- An integrated optic module to link the Outdoor Unit (ODU) to an Indoor Unit (IDU) modem over great distance without added weight
- The ability to quickly and easily change the RF equipment which makes the GLOBETrekker very adaptable to meet the changing requirements of the customer.
The customer, who has worked with Norsat previously, chose the GLOBETrekker 2.0 terminal due to the functionality of our built in spectrum analyzer, the ruggedness of the unit, the sunlight readable display and LinkControl profile which makes the system very easy to use.
"We are extremely pleased to receive another order for our GLOBETrekker 2.0 terminals for military applications. This is a testament to the quality of our products and that Norsat can deliver products and solutions that meet the stringent specifications outlined by these type of government organizations," commented Dr. Amiee Chan, chief executive officer of Norsat.
The Company expects to commence shipments of the terminals during the 1st half of 2017.
