Norsat International... SigmaLink Settling In For European Military Organization

Norsat International Inc. (“Norsat") (TSX: NII and OTC BB: NSATF) has been awarded a network service contract valued at $1.7 million from a military group based in Europe. Dr. Amiee Chan, President and CEO of Norsat, said, “This service contract is an important win for Norsat as it culminated several months of detailed work with a specific unit within this European-based military. This customer, which requested to remain unnamed due to confidentiality, has recently expanded its fleet of satellite terminals and is relying on Norsat’s dual-band SigmaLink flyaway systems with their deployed forces. To support those remote operations, Norsat has recently installed several antennas from our OmegaLink line for their hub operation out in the field. We believe our extensive consultation, training and responsive customer support makes Norsat the best choice as a trusted agent for this military’s communications requirements. While Norsat has long enjoyed the trust and confidence of U.S. Military forces, this new contract signals a deeper penetration of the European military market for both equipment and network management and also enhances our global positioning as a complete connectivity solutions provider.”
