ORBIT Communication Systems Ltd., a  provider of mission-critical communication solutions for land, sea and air platforms, has received an order to supply its new OceanTRx4 maritime satellite communication systems to an Asian Navy. 

The  undisclosed Asian customer has been operating ORBIT’s previous-generation OrSat maritime VSAT systems for the past five years, says a press note from the company.
Orbit CEO Ofer Greenberger said: "By deploying OceanTRx, the Asian navy [customer] will continue to benefit from Orbit's cutting-edge performance and support, which enable reliable and cost-effective high throughput broadband data communications on board their ships."
The 1.15m VSAT antenna system aims to support multi-band frequency configurations including X, Ku and Ka bands, as well as a range of BUC power levels.
Featuring inherent field upgradeability, improved RF performance and dynamic response under virtually any sea conditions, the OceanTRx4 supports a broad range of mission-critical applications. The design reportedly delivers enhanced performance and significant competitive advantages.
To date, ORBIT's maritime satellite communication systems are deployed at more than 20 navies worldwide, as well as being used in market segments such as homeland security, Oil & Gas, leisure and commercial shipping. These systems are considered the world’s leading solutions of their kind due to their technical performance and durability under the most demanding conditions. 
Equally remarkable is their compatibility with international standards, including performance and regulatory compliance per the demands of the world’s largest satellite companies.
