Orbit to Deliver Dual-Band Maritime SATCOM Terminals to the Polish Navy

Orbit Communications Systems has received an additional order for its dual-band OceanTRx 4 systems by leading Polish defense systems integrator, THESTA. The order was made by THESTA on behalf of the PGZ Group, the leading contractor of naval navigation, communications and combat systems in Poland. PGZ will be deploying the OceanTRx 4 systems aboard the Polish Navy's Cormorant-Class Minehunter.

The OceanTRx 4 is a rugged and innovative stabilized dual-band maritime satcom platform. It further expands Orbit's industry-leading OceanTRx series, featuring outstanding RF performance, system availability and dynamic response under virtually any offshore conditions. Supporting the mission-critical broadband needs of navy vessels, it was designed for one-day deployment and simple updates and maintenance. Orbit's maritime platform provides outstanding performance and high reliability, while achieving a low total cost of ownership.

Orbit is a world leader in maritime satcom solutions for navies and the commercial sector, with several thousand systems now providing services across the seven seas. The new repeat order from a long-term customer underscores the trend for defense organizations to turn to companies like Orbit for best-of-breed commercial systems adapted for defense applications.
