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.
