M2 EQUITYBITES-July 26, 2016-Norsat receives USD3.8m order from Harris for ATOM series 100w Ku-Band Solid State Power Amplifiers


Norsat International Inc (Norsat) (TSX: NII)( NYSE MKT: NSAT), a provider of customised communication solutions for remote and challenging applications, announced on Monday the receipt of an approximate USD3.8m order from Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) for its compact and efficient ATOM series Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs).

Reportedly, Norsat has been working closely with Harris since 2013, in order to develop and deliver custom SSPAs to meet the challenging RF performance requirements for linearity, gain flatness and phase matching that is required by the Harris system.

This current contract is for the second phase of the project that Norsat first announced in October 2013 and April 2014 after the successful implementation of the SSPAs.

Also, Norsat is a subcontractor to Harris to provide Ku-Band SSPAs for a system that upconverts and amplifies L-Band composite signals. Each Harris system replaces nine large racks of legacy equipment with an array of twenty-four 100W Ku-band ATOM SSPAs.

According to the company, Harris selected the Norsat ATOM series SSPAs due to its compact size, remote control capability and low lifecycle costs, which were key differentiators. As well, the unique phase matching of the ATOM SSPA allows Harris to design hot-swap capability.
