Norsat Receives Follow-on Order From Eurasian Defense Contractor
[Via Satellite 07-27-2015] Norsat International has received an approximate $700,000 follow-on order to the original $3.5 million award announced on February 19 from a Tier 1 Eurasian defense contractor for a range of Norsat’s portable satellite terminals. This follow-on order increases the total contract awarded to approximately $4.2 million.
The increase in order is for additional units of Norsat’s MarineLink maritime VSAT terminals and for the 0.9m Journey Manpack portable satellite terminal. Norsat’s MarineLink shipboard terminals offer a three-axis operating platform and a 360-degree, high-speed tracking antenna. The 0.9m Journey Manpack consists of a portable, rapidly deployable, satellite terminal that weighs less than 25 kilograms.
Norsat expects to ship the majority of the terminals in late 2015 with follow on deliveries throughout 2016.
