ORBIT to Supply Aeronautical Telemetry Tracking Systems to Major European Aerospace Center - ORBIT Continues to Expand Business Presence in Europe

NETANYA, Israel, Jan. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ORBIT Communications
Systems Ltd., a subsidiary of ORBIT Technologies Ltd. (TASE:ORBI), a
provider of mission-critical connectivity solutions in a variety of
markets, including satellite communications, tracking and telemetry,
and communications management systems, today announced that it has won
a contract from a major European aerospace center for the supply of two
portable telemetry tracking systems. The total value of the deals
exceeds one million dollars.

ORBIT's transportable tracking systems, equipped with 4.5-meter and
1.5-meter S-band antennas, respectively, will be used by the aerospace
center for highly dynamic aeronautical tracking and telemetry missions.
These antenna systems are specially designed to enable fast deployment
and can be easily assembled and operated in the field. The 1.5-meter
system, in particular, can be carried and assembled in the field by two
persons without requiring a mechanical lift. Both systems fit into
standard containers to facilitate shipping by road and sea, and allow
for easy mobility between different locations.

The tracking systems are operated and monitored using ORBIT's AL-4000
controller, featuring a dual-CPU architecture to enable real-time
response for mission-critical data acquisition, as well as an advanced
touch-screen GUI. An auto-tracking feed with full redundancy ensures
100% integrity of tracking data over time. In addition, it is possible
to use both systems in parallel (from different locations) to create
two sets of tracking data, allowing for an additional level of
redundancy. ORBIT's systems are proven to operate in extreme
environmental conditions, such as heavy winds and cold temperatures as
low as -40ºC (-40ºF).

"This strategic project with a leading player in the European aerospace
industry is further evidence of our expanding footprint in the European
market," said Ofer Greenberger, CEO of ORBIT Communication Systems Ltd.
"We are confident that the success of this and other recent projects in
this region will lead to additional deployments and new opportunities
in the areas of earth observation and telemetry tracking applications."
