NETANYA, Israel, 3 Jan. 2011. ORBIT Communication Systems, Ltd., won a contract to supply multiple ship borne unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) tracking and communications systems to an undisclosed user.

The advanced tracking and communications systems are designed to be operated on platforms at sea. Compensating for the constant motion of the marine platforms, the stabilized systems deliver precise tracking of the UAV and will be utilized for communications, command, control, and intelligence provided by the UAVs in maritime environments.

The systems are part of ORBIT's family of tracking antenna solutions, which enable high speed telemetry, data, and video communication links with platforms in motion -- for a range of applications -- from flight tests to satellite imaging.
