Com Dev to deliver high throughput communications satellite for MENA

Canada-based manufacturer of space hardware subsystems, Com Dev International, has won a contract to deliver multiplexer equipment, waveguide and coaxial switches and microwave components to be used on a high throughput communications satellite designed to provide direct-to-home premium television content to the Middle East and North Africa.

“This contract award reflects both the continued growth in the market from the increased demand for broadband capacity and our expertise in Ku-band components,” said Mike Williams, President of COM DEV International Products.

The contract, valued at over USD 7.5 million, is expected to be expanded in the coming weeks to include additional equipment valued over USD 5.5 million and the project is expected to be delivered by August 2015.
