News Gathering (SNG)-



VANCOUVER - Norsat International Inc. ("Norsat" or the "Company") (TSX: NII and NYSE MKT: NSAT), a provider of unique and customized communication solutions for remote and challenging applications, today announced the ATOM 250 Watt Ku-band Block Upconverters (BUC) and Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs), the latest edition to the ATOM Series products.



The ATOM 250 Watt Ku-Dual band BUC provides 250W of saturated power (200W @ P1dB) in one of the most compact sizes in the market. Covering transmit frequencies from 12.25 to 18 GHz, including CDL-Band and Low KU Band, the ATOM 250W SSPAs and BUCs can be configured to suit operation on any Ku Band satellite. Ethernet, redundancy configurations, EMI/EMC, and other custom options are available upon request.



The ATOM series are up to 85% smaller, 90% lighter, and 60% more energy efficient than alternatives, enabling a wide range of applications including TWTA replacement, Satellite News Gathering, transportable VSAT, Satcom on the Move, and Radar. The ATOM 250W also includes ATOMControl, the same Management and Control software that powers the full ATOM Ku and Ka family of products.



"We are pleased to announce yet another product in the popular line of ATOM Series of BUCs and SSPAs, "stated Norsat President CEO, Dr. Amiee Chan. "We continue to build upon the strengths of this product offering to develop the next generation technology. Our ATOM product line sales continued to gather market traction and our customers continue to be extremely pleased with the ATOM products and our customization capabilities to meet their highly stringent demands."



Norsat has shipped the first ATOM 250W BUC to our initial customer for integration into a radar transceiver application and is accepting new orders now. For more information on the ATOM 250W BUC go to: http://www.norsat.com/solutions/microwave-products/buc-ku-band/
