November 4, 2011

Cobham has been awarded two contracts totaling more than US $72 M during the next six years through its newly acquired Trivec-Avant business, which has become part of the Antenna Systems Strategic Business Unit.

The US Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) has issued a $60.7 M contract to add options and contract extensions for the purchase of commercial off the shelf (COTS), small ship variant, ultra-high frequency (UHF) satellite communication antenna systems and mobile user objective systems, with associated spares and sub-assemblies.

A six-year purchase agreement was also recently signed with Thales Communications Inc., to supply a variety of SATCOM antennas in support of Thales’ Integrated Waveform rollout for their AN/PRC-148 Joint Tactical Radio System Enhanced Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio (AN/PRC-148 JEM). The agreement could result in revenue of up to $2 M per year.
