Teledyne Defence & Space, a business unit of Teledyne Microwave Solutions, announced today that it has been selected to manufacture over 5,000 Filters and Diplexers to support a space payload application for a large satellite program.
In recognition of the company’s expanding portfolio of space-based products and capabilities, last year the former Teledyne Defence changed its corporate name to Teledyne Defence & Space (TDS). This new contract award underscores the commitment TDS is bringing to space market expansion beyond its historical focus on defence markets.
Under terms of the award, TDS will provide Filters and Diplexers for space payloads.
“We are of course thrilled to be in a position to be selected as the first choice to fulfil the large and demanding production requirements of this program,” said Ian Skiggs, General Manager of Teledyne Defence & Space. “For the past year TDS has been investing heavily in both capital projects and staffing to meet and exceed the expectations of our space-based customers. Internally, our ability to bulk-produce complex filters, Diplexers, channelisers and more at the most competitive pricing has been key to our growing success in the space market.”
