Frequency Electronics Receives HTS Payload Order
[Via Satellite 05-25-2016] Frequency Electronics won a contract worth more than $5 million to supply master timing and frequency generation systems for an undisclosed High Throughput Satellite (HTS) project. The satellite will operate in Ka-band with extremely high throughput along with enhanced bandwidth flexibility and economy to meet dual government mobile bandwidth and other commercial demand.
Work on this satellite and other payload projects had been anticipated to commence in 2015. The contract now calls for completion in under 18 months.
“This new contract is another example of awards we originally expected last year but which ‘moved to the right.’ It is for a very advanced satellite payload using Frequency’s unique proprietary low phase noise and low G technology to achieve high throughput capacity. We see great opportunity in the growing demand for high throughput capacity from commercial and government users, especially for mobile broadband and high-definition video,” said Martin Bloch, CEO of Frequency Electronics.
