Glowlink will provide the U.S. Air Force with an unspecified number of systems for satellite signal monitoring and locating sources of interference under a contract valued at $2.7 million, the company announced Jan. 3.

Los Altos, Calif.-based Glowlink characterized the competitively awarded, firm-fixed-price contract as one of the most significant in its history. Glowlink specializes in systems based on commercial, off-the-shelf technology that allow satellite operators to monitor the integrity of their signals and determine the location of sources of interference.

Glowlink spokeswoman Valerie Low said she could not disclose the number or performance of systems to be provided to the Air Force or where they would be deployed.
