Gilat received US$2 million in orders for support of LEO constellation


Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today that it received additional orders of US$2 million for support of gateways of low Earth orbit (LEO) constellations. The orders were received as part of the previously announced contract.


Gilat’s subsidiary, Wavestream, was chosen as the vendor of choice to supply Gateway Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) to a leading satellite operator to support the LEO constellation gateways.


Wavestream is proceeding according to plan with delivery of orders for its Gateway-Class PowerStream 160Ka SSPAs, designed specifically for networks using wide bandwidth uplinks and high order modulation schemes. Wavestream’s SSPAs were selected because of their best-in-class technical performance and their unmatched reliability in harsh environments, best addressing the stringent requirements of non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) constellations installed in remote locations.


The high-volume manufacturing of these highly-complex Gateway-class SSPAs is proceeding at an unprecedented production rate, with orders now exceeding 800 Gateway-Class SSPAs with all deliveries expected in the next 12 months.
