Space hardware system maker Com Dev International Ltd. said Monday it has won a $1.2-million (U.S.) contract to provide technology for a commercial communications satellite.
The "authorization to proceed" order for its contract includes switches, filters and multiplexers for a commercial communications satellite for an unnamed customer. The order is expected to lead to a full contract worth at least $8-million, the company said in a statement.
Work on the contract is expected to be completed in the first half of 2011.
Com Dev designs and makes space hardware subsystems, with facilities in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
