VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Norsat International Inc. (“Norsat") today announced that it has released multi-band versions of its GLOBETrekker™ and Rover™ satellite systems, which will now be available in Ka Band. Norsat will also introduce its latest addition to the Ka band group of products by offering two new low noise block-downconverters (LNB), the 9000H-2 and the 9000X-2 Ka Band. The new LNBs are compact, lightweight units with improved noise figures. The offerings will be debuting at the industry tradeshow Satellite 2011, being held March 15-17, 2011 in Washington, D.C.

The new GLOBETrekker™ and Rover™ systems deliver proven capability to operate on Ka band satellites and enhance operational flexibility by giving operators a choice between three critical frequency bands (Ku, X, and Ka band). The high performance of a one meter dish in Ka band will result in higher data rates than competitors’ smaller Ka band reflectors.

Norsat’s GLOBETrekker™ has been tested at the Coalition Warfare Interoperability Demonstration and has been used extensively in combat zones. With the launch of the new Block II Wideband Global SATCOM satellites –WGS 4, 5 and 6– more Ka and X band capacity will be available for military forces. The multi-band capability of Norsat systems gives defense customers the ability to utilize the increased Ka and X band capacity that will become available over the next few years.

Norsat’s products will be on display at Satellite 2011 from March 15–17, 2011 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The new multi-band GLOBETrekker™ system will be on display in the Norsat booth #560, the standard GLOBETrekker™ will be on display in the Vizada booth #551 and the Norsat 1.8 metre Sigmalink will be on display at the ConcealFab Corporation booth #901.
