Orbit Communications Systems, a leading global provider of airborne communications and satellite-tracking maritime and ground-station solutions, announced that a major European Navy placed an order for maritime TVRO satcom systems spares and support, for approximately $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 reception of TV and data services for NATO and international naval vessels. Orbit's OceanTRx family of satcom terminals (including Multiband C/Ka and Ku/Ka versions) has replaced the AL-7200 series.

"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."
