Globecomm clinches $16m contract

July, 6, 2006

Globecomm Systems Inc. secured a new $1.6-million deal when a DTH service provider in Asia exercised the follow-on provision in their existing contract.

On Jan. 20, 2005, Globecomm announced a letter of award and purchase order from a DTH video services provider in Asia. The contract included follow-on provisions, which the customer had now exercised.

Under the original contract, Globecomm designed and built a new DTH uplink facility, which included two 13m antennas with tracking and all the related sub-systems. It also built a program acquisition system with a multi-feed receive only antenna, multiple receive only C-band antennas and all related subsystems.

The new contract entailed an upgrade of an existing facility.
