COM DEV International Ltd. (TSX:CDV) has been awarded follow-on contracts totaling more than CDN$7 million to provide passive microwave equipment for a military communications satellite. COM DEV will supply UHF diplexers, switch and filter assemblies, standalone switches and ancillary components. The Company expects to complete work on the contracts by the end of its 2011 fiscal year at its facility in Cambridge, Ontario.
“We are pleased to be selected to continue to work on this program, having already supplied equipment for several earlier spacecraft in the constellation,” said John Keating, CEO of COM DEV International. “In addition to these contracts which we will service from our Cambridge facility, we announced last month that our U.S. subsidiary had won a separate contract for work on the same satellite.”
