Globalstar will purchase additional sensor-enabled notification system appliqués from AeroAstro for its asset tracking network infrastructure.


PHOENIX, AZ (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Radyne Corp. (Nasdaq:RADN) announced its AeroAstro business unit has received a $1.2 million order from Globalstar to purchase additional SENS (Sensor Enabled Notification System) Appliques. Globalstar will use these appliques to expand its simplex data network.
