[Via Satellite 04-24-2014] Harris Corporation reduced its order for Atom series Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) provided by Norsat International. The cutback from $6.3 million to $3.15 million is due to the deferment of mission capabilities to a later date.

“While we are disappointed by this reduction in order size, Norsat is still very pleased to have been selected by an industry leader like Harris to provide a key component for their systems and it is very satisfying to know that even in a reduced quantity, our Atom technology will be enabling mission critical communications for Harris and its customer,” said Aimee Chan, Norsat’s president and CEO. “Norsat looks forward to working with Harris in the future for the second phase of the project once funding is available.”
