Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd.; a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services; announced it received an over $8 million dollar follow-on order for support of gateways of a low Earth orbit (LEO) constellation.

Gilat’s subsidiary, Wavestream, was chosen as the sole provider to supply Gateway solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) to a leading satellite operator to support the LEO constellation gateways. The order is above and beyond last year's previously announced $50 million contract, which is currently being delivered.

“Repeat business like this is a testament to our reliable manufacturing ability to meet the stringent requirements of non-geostationary satellite orbit constellations,” said Bob Huffman, general manager at Wavestream and senior vice president at Gilat. “Our manufacturing capacity, product reliability, and experience with high-power Ka-Band SSPA technologies position us well to capture a significant share of the NGSO gateway market.”
