CAMBRIDGE, Ont.: COM DEV International Ltd. has won a contract valued at more than $8 million to provide hardware for a commercial satellite providing communications coverage across the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

The manufacturer of space hardware subsystems said the Authorization to Proceed (ATP) contract from an unidentified customer covers engineering design and is valued at approximately US$1 million.

COM DEV will provide Coax and waveguide switches, Ku & Ka band IMUX and OMUX assemblies, input filters and coupler assemblies made at its Cambridge, Ont. plant.

The full value of the contract will be more than $8 million, to be completed by the end of 2013.
