With stakes this high, satellite manufacturers must be certain that every company in their supply chain has the proven capability to design and manufacture reliable technology for space and deliver it precisely on time.
COM DEV was founded in 1969 in Montreal, Canada and by 1974 began supplying supply microwave equipment to the emerging space industry; for four decades now our core business has been space engineering. We have grown to become a global organization with over 1,200 employees, serving the commercial, civil and military sectors of the satellite market.
Few organizations can match COM DEV’s heritage. We have supplied equipment to over 900 spacecraft – more than any other company in the world.
Over 80 percent of all commercial communications satellites ever launched have had COM DEV technology on board. We have long-standing relationships with the world’s major satellite manufacturers, and we have supplied equipment to leading organizations such as the Canadian Space Agency, the European Space Agency and NASA. Our reputation for reliability is unsurpassed.
All technologies we engineer are exhaustively analyzed and tested, and manufactured with extraordinary precision and control so that performance in space is absolutely predictable and consistent. COM DEV is a recognized leader in lean manufacturing techniques and is the world’s most trusted Tier 2 supplier in our field.
We help the world to connect.
