VANCOUVER, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Norsat International Inc. ("Norsat") (TSX: NII and OTC BB: NSATF), a leading provider of innovative communication solutions that enable the transmission of data, audio and video for remote and challenging applications, has received a reduction in its previously announced order from Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) for its compact and efficient ATOM series Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) from $6.3M to $3.15M. The reduction is due to the deferment of mission capabilities to a later date.
"Harris has been pleased with the performance of Norsat and its ATOM 100 Watt SSPA's for our satellite ground terminal program," said Bob Howley, Integrated Process Team Lead.
"While we are disappointed by this reduction in order size, Norsat is still very pleased to have been selected by an industry leader like Harris to provide a key component for their systems and it is very satisfying to know that even in a reduced quantity, our ATOM technology will be enabling mission critical communications for Harris and its customer," said Norsat President & CEO, Dr. Amiee Chan. "Norsat looks forward to working with Harris in the future for the second phase of the project once funding is available," added Chan.
