Norsat Highlights

In February, Norsat announced a $3.5 million order from a major Tier 1 Eurasian defense contractor for a broad range of portable satellite terminals. One of the driving factors in winning this contract was that Norsat could provide all of the products required by the customer including manpacks, flyaways, fixed terminals, maritime terminals, LNBs and BUCs. Norsat has made concerted efforts to invest and develop technology to further diversify our product offerings to meet the expanding needs of customers around the globe. Read more here.

Norsat signed a 3-year standing order with BC Emergency Health Services for its Comshel, communication shelters. The structures will be installed over the next three years to protect communications equipment in the mountainous western regions of Canada, permitting emergency personnel to effectively service the residents of British Columbia while ensuring communications equipment survives the harsh outdoor environment.

The Company delivered the first Ka-band ATOM 25 Watt Block Upconverter (BUC) to a key military customer for integration into a ground vehicle Comms-On-the-Move application. Norsat continues to stay at the forefront of innovation and is committed to developing and releasing products to meet customers expanding needs and the demands of the marketplace. Norsat anticipates that the product will be generally available in Q3, 2015. To learn more about Ka-band vs. Ku-band, read our blog titled “The Ka-bandwagon”.

Norsat successfully commenced trading on the NYSE MKT under the ticker symbol “NSAT” on February 10th. Read our blog titled “Norsat is welcomed to the Biggest Stage in Business – the NYSE MKT.
