OTTAWA, October 27, 2020 –C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSXV: CMI and OTC: CYSNF) the world’s leading designer of commercial grade mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today that it has received orders worth $3.4 Million USD for its iNetVu® Manpack (backpack) antenna systems. Several antenna systems have already been delivered. The balance of this order will be completed, and the associated revenue earned in the first quarter of C-COM’s 2021 fiscal year.
This significant purchase of the iNetVu® MP-100-MOT marks the second largest order the company has received for this specific system since its introduction in 2019. The 3-axis, fully motorized one-case backpack (iNetVu® MP-Series) is a lightweight, fully automatic antenna system that can be assembled in minutes without any tools and is able to locate the desired satellite, in less than 30 seconds, with the simple press of a button. This particular Manpack order will be deployed for disaster management and cellular backhaul by a significant end-user.
“We are not surprised that the iNetVu® Manpack series of antennas is turning out to be a best-selling product for C-COM,” said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM. “The rapid confirmation in the market for our latest technological development – a single case, carbon fibre, auto-pointing backpack system that can be carried and operated by one person – is validated by large orders like these,” Klein continued. “The Company continues to innovate and modernize the mobile SATCOM business by offering the highest quality products coupled with the best customer support available in the market today,” Klein added.
C-COM offers classic and next generation Driveaway, Flyaway, Fixed Motorized, and Manpack systems for any vertical market where communications are challenging due to disruption or deficiency. The Company’s products are integrated with all major modem manufacturers and approved world-wide with most major satellite operators. The company works closely with more than 500 active resellers / integrators in over 100 countries.
C-COM is also collaborating with a renowned research team at the University of Waterloo on the development of an electronically steerable, Ka-band flat panel antenna system that is based on a patented phased array beam forming technology. This system has the potential to revolutionize satellite addressable mobility markets (land, air, maritime).
