Orbit Communications Systems has received a new order from an undisclosed Asian Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the delivery of aeronautical telemetry system.

Under the deal, the company will be responsible for providing the new system, including a 5m S-band antenna and full ground station with total data chain capabilities.

The high-precision aeronautical telemetry solution will be used for test range applications.

Delivery of the new system is expected next year, with the order being valued at approximately $5m.

Orbit Communications Systems chief executive officer Eitan Livneh said: “This order follows on the heels of a similar one from April of this year, for a 1.8m S-band system, from the same customer.

“The solution is designed to facilitate real-time monitoring of environmental conditions in flying objects.”

“Repeat deals such as these validate our value proposition in the market.”

Telemetry is an automated process that transmits measurements wirelessly from a remote object to a command station. It is also used in defence and civilian applications such as space exploration and rocketry.

The solution is designed to facilitate real-time monitoring of environmental conditions in flying objects.

In case of military flight test missions, aeronautical telemetry helps monitor data collected from on-board instrumentation over a radio frequency link and can be used to ensure test pilot safety.

The company also provides precision tracking-based communications in the areas of satellite communications, telemetry and remote sensing, in addition to an airborne audio management solution.
