 COM DEV International Ltd., a manufacturer of space hardware subsystems, has been awarded contracts to provide switches and other microwave filters and components for the fifth satellite in a North American military communications program.

The total value of the contracts is in excess of US$7 million, and work is expected to be completed within the next 12 months at the company’s facility in Cambridge, Ont.

“This is the fifth consecutive order for equipment that (we) have received from this customer, on this program,” said Michael Williams, president of COM DEV’s international products division.

With facilities in Canada, the U.K. and the U.S., the firm manufactures advanced products and subsystems that are sold to major satellite prime contractors for use in communications, space science, remote sensing and military satellites.
