Colin Bolton, Director of Business Development, SpacePath Communications, said, “We are delighted that our lightweight and compact solid-state amplifiers have been selected for these new applications. This latest order yet again underlines our proven credentials in advanced, uplink amplifier technology among the global telecommunications and SATCOM market.”
