Tenth Navy Order for Orbit’s Maritime Satcom Terminals
Asian Navy signs US$2.7 million contract for a combination of OceanTRx 4 and OceanTRx 7 systems
Washington, DC, March 11, 2020 – Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI), a leading global provider of satellite-tracking maritime, airborne and ground-station solutions, announced today at the Satellite 2020 Conference in Washington, DC, a new US$2.7 million contract with a major Asian Navy for a combination of OceanTRx 4 and OceanTRx 7 maritime satcom terminals, and associated spares.
This order represents the tenth Navy to select Orbit’s OceanTRx product line, and the fourth in the last nine months. Since its introduction in 2015, OceanTRx has become the leading terminal in the large cruise ship segment, a top choice for offshore platforms and critical data links, and now the growing choice for Navy applications.
“The proven performance and reliability of OceanTRx, along with a range of antenna sizes and configurations, have been key differentiators in all of our recent Navy orders,” noted Orbit CEO Dany Eshchar. “In this case the Navy selected different antenna sizes to meet mission requirements of across a wide range of vessels, with the added benefit of common operations and shared spare parts.”
