Israel-based Orbit Communications Systems has secured a new order to supply its maritime satellite communications (satcom) systems to a major Asian Navy.

The order has a total value of approximately $1.1m and covers the delivery of an undisclosed number of Ku-band OceanTRx 4 systems, in addition to spare parts for existing Orbit-built devices.

Orbit Communications Systems president and chief executive officer Eitan Livneh said: “We are encouraged by this significant order from a long-standing customer.

"The order has a total value of approximately $1.1m and covers the delivery of an undisclosed number of Ku-band OceanTRx 4 systems."

“Naval vessels equipped with our forward-looking OceanTRx 4 systems have a real competitive edge.”

Orbit’s OceanTRx 4 is a 1.15m, stabilised, maritime very-small aperture terminal (VSAT) solution, which supports a variety of antenna system configurations across the X, Ku and Ka bands.

The company claims that the system is able to offer enhanced radio frequency (RF) performance, system availability and dynamic response in almost any sea conditions.
