ORBIT to Supply Aeronautical Test Telemetry Solution to Large Defense Organization in East Asia

Netanya, Israel, December 8, 2014 - ORBIT Communication Systems, a leading provider of mission and business critical communication solutions for air, sea and land platforms, today announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply an aeronautical test telemetry solution to a major defense organization in eastern Asia.

ORBIT will supply the defense organization with an unmanned telemetry system based on its AL-4018 S-band 3m antenna. This innovative solution will be installed in a distant area and be controlled remotely by a telemetry command and control station. This contract is a follow-up order from a high-value defense customer that successfully installed and operationally tested a set of ORBIT aeronautical test telemetry antenna solutions just a few months ago.

Over the past year, this Asian defense organization revamped its entire set of aeronautical test telemetry solutions, installing four ORBIT antenna systems in different sizes serving different applications. The new antenna system to be supplied by ORBIT is identical to one of the current systems on-site, guaranteeing smooth, integrated logistical support and cost-effective service.

According to Ofer Greenberger, ORBIT CEO: “This follow-up order is a clear vote of confidence in our aeronautical test telemetry systems. ORBIT is known for its high quality systems, as well as its willingness to always go the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction. We believe that our solution offers this defense customer the best value for its technological requirements and budget.”

ORBIT’s AL-4018 is a communication tracking and telemetry system designed to work in the most extreme sea and land weather conditions. This highly dynamic system incorporates rapid tracking capabilities while maintaining constant contact with the transmitting object. Based on its unsurpassed accuracy, it is well-suited to track UAV command and control and operational flight test telemetry.
