Orbit delivers satellite communications system to Israeli Navy

Orbit Communications Systems has delivered an OceanTRx 4 Mil satellite communications system to the Israeli Navy.

Orbit Communications Systems has delivered an OceanTRx 4 Mil satellite communications system to the Israeli Navy.

The military satellite communications system will be installed on the navy’s Saar 6-class corvette.

Based on the OceanTRx4 platform, OceanTRx 4 Mil is a Maritime Satcom Terminal with advanced military features.

The system, used by several naval forces, supports multiple configurations of 1.15m diameter antenna systems.

According to the company website, Orbit’s OceanTRx 4 Mil is designed for fast installation and requires simple updates and minimal maintenance.

It also supports worldwide connectivity over GEO, MEO and LEO satellites, and optional single or dual-band simultaneous operation.

Orbit CEO Daniel Eshchar said: “We are proud that the Israeli Navy has chosen the OceanTRx 4 Mil Platform.

“This platform is one of the most advanced naval satellite communication solutions in the world. The platform supports both military and civilian bands on a single military system.”

Orbit Communication Systems focuses on delivering airborne communications and satellite-tracking maritime and ground-station solutions.

The company is listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and has operations globally.

Last year, Orbit secured a contract that involved the delivery of OceanTRx 4 and OceanTRx 7 maritime Satcom terminals to an undisclosed Asian navy.

Notably, the Saar-6-class corvettes are based on the German MEKO 100 patrol corvette. They are designed to offer enhanced attack capabilities compared to the Sa’ar 5 class.
