C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSXV: CMI) has received orders of approximately $4.0 million for their next generation Flyaway and Manpack (backpack) systems.
The bulk of the order is for C-COM’s newest system design, the motorized Manpack antenna (iNetVu® MP-Series). These easy to transport, fully automatic, simple to assemble toolless products were purchased by several reseller partners and will be deployed for disaster management and cellular backup. A portion of the order has already shipped while the balance will ship in the third and fourth quarters of this fiscal year.
The company offers classic and next generation Driveaway, Flyaway, Fixed Motorized, and Manpack systems for any vertical market where communications are challenging due to disruption or deficiency. C-COM products are integrated with all major modem manufacturers and approved with most major satellite operators. The company works closely with more than 500 active resellers / integrators in over 100 countries.
C-COM is collaborating with a renowned research team at the University of Waterloo, on the development of an electronically steerable, Ka-band flat panel antenna system based on a patented phased array beam forming technology, which has the potential to revolutionize satellite’s addressable mobility markets (land, air, maritime).
Drew Klein, VP of C-COM, said the rapid confirmation of the company's latest technological development — a single case, carbon fiber, auto-pointing backpack system that can be carried by one person and finds satellite in less than a minute just by pressing a button — is validated by large orders like these. C-COM continues to innovate and modernize the mobile SATCOM business by offering the highest quality products coupled with the best customer support available in the market today.
