Aitech Defense Systems, Inc., the world’s first and largest independent manufacturer of open architecture board and subsystem level products for harsh environment defense, aerospace and astronautics applications, has been selected by Argon ST (NASDAQ: STST) to provide the payload processor systems for ORBCOMM’s (NASDAQ: ORBC) next-generation low earth orbit (LEO) communications satellites.

Designed for larger and faster data transfers, backward compatibility and endurance in harsh environments, the OG2 Space Segment satellites will incorporate Aitech’s proven space technology that combines low power and compact size with exceptional computing performance. Aitech will develop, qualify and produce each system at the processor card level as well as integrate each system into the payload.

Tarun Soni, business area director of Argon ST Network Systems, noted, “These payloads require very high performance and durability for extended periods of time in unforgiving environments and system failure is not an option. Aitech's advanced, open architecture embedded products are critical towards developing such a complex solution on a demanding schedule. In addition, the knowledge and competency of Aitech make this a genuine partnership."

Doug Patterson, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for Aitech, said, “Virtually any computing environment benefits from smaller size and lower power requirements coupled with increased performance. Argon ST designed the OG2 payloads to increase subscriber capacity by up to 12 times more than the current satellites, while keeping the satellites within their compact footprint, so the payloads to support this design need to provide optimum performance. Aitech can deliver the products as well as the integration to ensure seamless operation.”

The $12.5M contract calls for the launch of the first LEO satellite as early as 2010. The initial contract includes an option to provide additional satellites and other ground support equipment during the life of the program.

Aitech will also provide parts program management and component engineering services to the overall payload for all other subsystems.
