Com Dev
: 17 March, 2010  (Application Story)
EADS Astrium has selected Com Dev to supply switches, multiplexers and filters for use on commercial broadband satellites to be supplied for the European and African markets
Com Dev International has been selected by EADS Astrium to provide passive microwave equipment for a series of four commercial communications satellites. Com Dev will supply switches, filters and multiplexers for use on the satellites which EADS Astrium is building for SES. The satellites will deliver next generation broadcast, VSAT and broadband services in Europe and Africa.

Com Dev has initially been awarded authorizations to proceed (ATPs) valued at CDN$2.8 million. The ATPs are expected to lead to full contracts valued in excess of CDV$14 million, with work scheduled to be completed by early 2012 at Com Dev’s facility in Cambridge, Ontario.

“EADS Astrium has been a customer for decades, and we’re very pleased with the confidence they’ve shown in selecting us for a multi-satellite program,” said John Keating, CEO of Com Dev International. “These satellites will provide both replacement and incremental capacity, demonstrating the ongoing trend of increasing demand for satellite communications services.”
