Global Invacom Group, the Kent-based provider of satellite ground network equipment, has announced that its subsidiary, Global Foxcom, has been awarded a government contract to supply its latest military grade, Iridium/GPS Repeater System to the U.S. Navy.

The military grade system, which is designed to provide GPS and satellite communications coverage to sub-deck and sub-terranean facilities, underwent rigorous testing and verification to ensure 24/7 service and operational continuity without line-of-sight to the orbiting satellites above.

Frank Montgomery, Project Engineer for the U.S. Navy, said: "The Iridium/GPS Repeater System is an important addition to our solution portfolio, enabling us to extend satellite coverage to facilities on land and sea, where it helps optimize our response readiness and the security of our staff and assets."

The Group expects a positive contribution to its earnings from the contract but is not expected to have material impact on the Group's assets.

Global Foxcom Managing Director, Yaakov ben-Harosh, said: "Working with the U.S. Navy and several other military clients helped us optimize a product platform that is fit for multiple deployment scenarios.

''But it's not just about the product, no two military use-cases are identical, so our planning and modelling services are an integral part of the overall solution."
