Orbit to Show Advanced Tracking Terminals – in Action – at Satellite 2017 in DC, Booth 2507, March 7-9, 2017

Leader in airborne and maritime satellite communications will also unveil its revolutionary terrestrial satcom solution for LEO/MEO satellites

Netanya, Israel, February 28, 2017 – Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI), a leading provider of precision tracking-based communications solutions, announced today that it will show its airborne AirTRx™ and maritime OceanTRx™ satcom terminals, in action, at Satellite 2017 in Washington DC, booth 2507, March 7-9. The company also intends to unveil its terrestrial TerraTRx™ satcom solution for NGSO satellites at the event.

OceanTRx – The solution of choice for modern navies

Orbit recently received orders totaling approximately US$3.5 million for its OceanTRx satcom terminals from three European navies. One of these deals is in partnership with a global systems integrator for naval fleet expansions.

At Satellite 2017, the latest OceanTRx4 system will be shown. With complete support for multi-band configurations on a single platform, OceanTRx users benefit from increased flexibility and scalability.

Gaia – Leading Earth Observation (EO) ground systems

The company recently closed deals of more than US$2.5 million for its Gaia 100 remote-sensing ground stations for real-time data capture from LEO or MEO satellites. The orders were placed by a leading academic institution, two world-renowned imaging service providers and a world leader in emergency readiness and response for global deployment.

AirTRx – The world’s most deployed airborne satcom platform

At the event, AirTRx60 will be displayed. Its predecessors, AirTRx46, AirTRx34 and AirTRx25, have already become synonymous with airborne satcom due to their superior performance and aero experience. AirTRx terminals are deployed at multiple customers around the world.

“We approach Satellite 2017 with a sense of confidence after receiving a spate of recent orders while chalking up a long list of innovations,” expanded Gidi Talmor, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at Orbit. “We look forward to greeting our friends at the event and encourage them to contact us to discuss our advanced precision tracking-based solutions.”
