European Navy Extends Lifetime of Orbit's Legacy Maritime TVRO Satcom System With Support Order

March 13, 2019

Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. announced that a major European Navy placed an order, for maritime TVRO satcom systems spares and support, for approximately US$3 million. Delivery of the spares for Orbit's widely-deployed AL-7200 series of maritime TVRO is planned in 2019.

For over two decades Orbit's maritime TVRO satcom systems have provided reliable and uninterrupted reception of TV and data services for NATO and international naval vessels, operating in the most severe conditions. Orbit's OceanTRx family of satcom terminals (including Multiband C/Ka and Ku/Ka versions) has replaced the AL-7200 series with enhanced performance and functionality, as well as reduced size and weight.

"The AL-7200 series is a great example of Orbit's trademark reliability and longevity. While some parts are now scarce, we have secured a well-stocked inventory of spares to allow the Navy to maintain its existing TVRO systems well into the future," stated Ben Weinberger, CEO of Orbit. "Additionally, when upgrades are requested, we will be ready with the most up-to-date, cost-effective and reliable maritime satcom solutions available."
