Norsat has pioneered advances in portable satellite and microwave communications technologies for over 30 years. Norsat International Inc. began operating in 1977 as Northern Satellite Systems with a mission to develop leading satellite technologies for the consumer and commercial markets. Since that time, the Company has established a solid history of developing innovative, high quality products, bringing many industry firsts to market.
From these roots, Norsat extended its product offering to include a full range of microwave products, digital products for terrestrial and wireless applications, and open standard networks that provide customers with reliable, high-speed data transmission. Norsat further expanded its product portfolio to include antennas and RF conditioning products through its acquisition of Sinclair Technologies Inc. in January 2011.
