Norsat gets USD3.3m order for Globetrekker 2.0

Communication solutions provider for remote and challenging applications firm Norsat International Inc. (TSX: NII and NYSE MKT: NSAT) has received an approximate USD3.3m order for its GLOBETrekker 2.0 portable satellite terminals from a US Combat Support Agency supporting the US Department of Defense and Intelligence Community, the company said.

The GLOBETrekker is an intelligent fly-away satellite terminal with unsurpassed reliability, advanced auto-acquire technology, and a flexible deployment platform.
