COM DEV International Ltd., a manufacturer of space hardware subsystems, this week announced that it has been awarded an Authority to Proceed (ATP) contract to begin work on equipment for two commercial communications satellites with options for two additional satellites.
The ATP, which covers preliminary engineering and materials procurement, is valued at $5 million. The full contract value is expected to be in excess of $14 million, with the potential to increase to more than $26 million if the customer exercises all options.
