Orbit Communications Systems has announced that an Asian Ministry of Defense (MoD) ordered an aeronautical telemetry system for approximately US$5 million.
The turnkey solution – including a 5-meter S-band antenna and full ground station with total data chain capabilities – will be used for test range applications. Delivery of the high-precision system is expected in 2019.
“This order follows on the heels of a similar one from April of this year, for a 1.8-meter S-band system, from the same customer,” indicated Eitan Livneh, Orbit’s CEO. “Repeat deals such as these validate our value proposition in the market.”
