[SatNews] "ISR systems provide critical communications links to our military personnel and must be capable of operating in a network-centric battle-space where there is no room for error or delay."
The Malibu Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) has been awarded a follow-on order of more than $5 million for the continued production of tactical common data link (TCDL) antenna ground terminals operating in Ku-band. With this most recent order, in the past two years, CPI Malibu Division has received multi-year orders totaling more than $30 million for advanced ground data terminals.
These ground data terminals are used by the U.S. military in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications to communicate information, including video and radar information, between ground control stations and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms. CPI Malibu Division's Ku-band advanced ground data terminals feature unique auto-tracking capability, which facilitates continuous contact between ground personnel and the UAV.
"ISR systems provide critical communications links to our military personnel and must be capable of operating in a network-centric battle-space where there is no room for error or delay. It is crucial to us that our troops be able to depend wholeheartedly on CPI's tactical and portable data links," said Steve Lonngren, president of CPI Malibu Division.
Work on these orders is being completed at CPI Malibu Division in Camarillo, California.
