Norsat International + Datacom Systems—An X-Band Win (SATCOM—Terminal)

[SatNews] Norsat International Inc. (“Norsat”) (TSX: NII and OTC BB: NSATF) has received a $1.7M order from Datacom Systems International Limited for Norsat’s MarineLink COM10X 1 meter X-Band satellite terminal.

Norsat will provide their COM10X marine VSAT to Datacom for installation on naval ships for an Asian-based country. The new COM10X conforms to military standards MIL-STD-901D and MIL-STD-167 for immunity to the high impact shock and vibrations that occur onboard military ships. The Norsat terminals include advanced features, such as a high gain antenna, specialized transmit/receive reject filters, a remotely accessible web interface, an integrated satellite database, and a rugged, low-loss radome. Norsat’s Low Noise Block down-converter (LNB) will also be integrated into each terminal.

Datacom will install ship-wide cable runs from above deck to below deck, deploy mounting pedestals, install air conditioners, integrate a satellite modem, and will conduct testing and commissioning of each VSAT system on multiple ships. In addition to providing the terminals, Norsat will provide training and installation supervision.
