[Via Satellite 06-26-2014] ASC Signal Corporation was selected by government and commercial customers to deliver 115 Ka-band gateways and large antennas systems over the course of the past six months. A large number of ASC’s 2.5-meter Nomadic multi-band antennas and several 4.9-meter dual-band (Ka-band and low-Passive Intermodulation (PIM) X-band) antennas are on order for defense applications. For commercial customers, the main orders entail the 5.6-meter Ka-band gateways for Direct-to-Home (DTH) services and network installations of more than twenty 5.6-meter, 8.1-meter and 9.4-meter gateways. The company’s Next Generation Controller, which provides control of six axes of motion on the ASC antennas, has also largely contributed to the company’s recent successful period.
