Polish Navy's Minehunter Deploys Orbit Communications' OceanTRx 4 Systems

Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI) has revealed that systems integrator THESTA, ordered additional dual-band OceanTRx 4 systems for the PGZ Group, a leading contractor of naval navigation, communications and combat systems in Poland, for deployment aboard the Polish Navy’s Cormorant-Class Minehunter.

OceanTRx 4 is a rugged and innovative stabilized dual-band maritime SATCOM platform. It further expands Orbit’s 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.

Cezary Majchrowicz, Technical Director at THESTA, said the company offers a wide range of products and services to the entire naval sector in Poland. The firm expects the success of OceanTRx with the Navy will help the firm to expand this partnership with Orbit.

Stav Gizunterman, SVP, Business Development & Marketing at Orbit, said the company 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. This repeat order from a long-term customer underscores the trend for defense organizations to turn to companies such as Orbit for best-of-breed commercial systems adapted for defense applications.
