Tier-1 US military terminal provider makes US$5+ million order with Gilat for solid state amplifiers
Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today a follow-on order of over US$5 million from a Tier-1 US global military terminal provider for solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) for satellite communication (SATCOM) terminals sold to militaries throughout the world. Further contract expansion for Wavestream MicroStream SSPAs is expected in the near future.
Gilat’s fully-owned subsidiary, Wavestream, will provide tightly integrated MicroStream frequency conversion/amplifier units. Wavestream’s MicroStream Ka-band SSPAs were chosen because they efficiently meet the exacting SWaP requirements most essential for tactical and expeditionary military users.
“We are proud of the partnership we are building with this customer, and this order is indicative of their continued trust in Wavestream technology, production capacity, and reliability,” said Bob Huffman, Wavestream’s General Manager.
