Contract for Satellite Communications Components

Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE:DCO) (“Ducommun” or the “Company”) today announced that it has received a contract from Airbus Defence and Space to design and manufacture high reliability (Hi-Rel) switch matrices used in space. Ducommun will produce the switch matrices at its Carson, Calif., operations center through July 2018. A switch matrix is a system of electronic components that route RF signals between multiple inputs and outputs. Airbus will use the Hi-Rel switch matrices on satellites that provide mobile communications for both military and commercial customers in remote areas.

“This is a great win for Ducommun as we expand our market base with applications supporting Airbus’ space programs,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We are proud of our relationship with Airbus and the ability to demonstrate our expertise in RF engineering design capabilities for extreme environments.”
