OTTAWA, June 8, 2022 –C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSXV: CMI and OTC: CYSNF) a leading global provider of commercial grade mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today, that it received multiple antenna system orders from Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), an innovator in satellite and multi-transport technologies and networks for 50 years. The antennas, manufactured by C-COM, are designed and approved to integrate seamlessly with the Hughes JUPITER™ System, the most widely used satellite ground system in the world and the de facto industry standard for satellite broadband implementations.
This multi-unit order for the C-COM manufactured iNetVu® 98G Ka-band Vehicle Mount antenna and the iNetVu® MP-100-MOT Manpack antenna has recently been delivered to a Hughes customer in Africa.
C-COM iNetVu® 98G Vehicle Mount Antenna
The 3-axis, fully motorized Ka-98G auto-pointing antenna system, designed to be mounted on the roof of vehicles or transportable structures, is one of C-COM’s best-selling Ka-band manufactured products. These antennas have been integrated to work seamlessly with the Hughes JUPITER System (HT2500) modems. This fully automatic antenna can be transported on a vehicle or a trailer to any location where no connectivity exists and with a press of a button the antenna can locate the desired satellite and deliver Broadband Internet connectivity.
C-COM iNetVu® MP-100-MOT Manpack Antenna
The iNetVu® MP-100-MOT Manpack antenna is a fully motorized auto-acquire 100 cm carbon fibre antenna that can be carried by one person and can be deployed within minutes without any tools. It can automatically connect to any satellite within seconds, with just the press of a button, and has also been integrated to work with the Hughes HT2500 modem.
“This significant order from Hughes, a global leader in satellite communications, is a testimony to the quality, reliability and the worldwide acceptance of the iNetVu® series of antennas,” said Leslie Klein, President, and CEO of C-COM. “The ability for C-COM to rapidly deliver a large number of antennas, despite worldwide supply chain issues, is validated by large orders like these,” Klein continued.
“The C-COM antennas approved for operation on the Hughes JUPITER System augment our own antennas in meeting our customers’ needs for on-the-move and on-the-pause satcom solutions,” said Francis Selvadoss, Vice President, International Division, Hughes. “This latest order of antennas will enable on-demand connectivity for public security and news gathering applications for our customers in Africa.”
