MSCI Wins Supplier Contract for Undisclosed Constellation

Mississauga Ontario – October 6, 2010 – Microsat Systems Canada Inc. (MSCI) (formerly the Space Division of Dynacon Inc.), Canada’s designer and builder of the Multi Mission Microsatellite Bus technology, and innovator of Reaction Wheel attitude control system products, announced today that the company has won a competitive bid to supply MW 200 Reaction Wheels for a new microsatellite constellation. For commercial confidentiality the constellation name and mission has not been disclosed.

Over the last number of years, MSCI has supplied MW 200 and MW 1000 Reaction Wheels to numerous North American and international microsatellite/small satellite builders for scientific and operational missions. This is MSCI’s first contract however for a commercial constellation.

“This contract represents a real milestone for MSCI,” stated David R. Cooper, President and CEO, MSCI. “Since MSCI purchased the space division from Dynacon Inc., we have sought to expand our customer base both in Reaction Wheels and Microsatellites to the commercial sector. Our extensive experience in producing reaction wheels for defense and space agency organizations globally has enabled MSCI to meet the demanding cost and scheduling requirements of high-volume commercial customers.”

“We look forward to the growth that this brings to MSCI and to helping our Customer achieve success in their constellation.”
