“Q3 2022 sales and profitability have increased substantially as compared to Q3, 2021. This post pandemic trend continues to improve with the re-activation of new orders from our global dealer network that was affected by the world-wide economic slowdown due to the pandemic, said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
Klein added: “We are also encouraged to see orders for systems coming in larger quantities and from a much broader geography than what we had experienced in 2020 and 2021. However, trade sanctions against Russia have had a negative impact on our 2022 sales, as we had to cancel multiple sizeable orders for system sales as well as for spare parts.”
Dr. Klein concluded: “We continue to be focused on our R&D effort to complete the development of our next generation electronically steered Ka-band phased array antenna system. This revolutionary in-motion antenna is in its final stages of development and will be deployed for use in vehicles, trains, aircraft, UAV’s as well as in maritime vessels.”
