This will open the team up to being able to complete more rigorous, frequent testing of how our products perform at extreme temperatures.

Spring Has Sprung!

By Blog Post

Spring has sprung in the Finger Lakes Region!  We hopefully got our last bit of snow last week and are full steam ahead into summer activities (much to the wishful thinking of our team.) While we try to be as nice to our great Engineers as possible, outdoor development work is much better from this point on!  We have some cool news coming out for our Lite Sat-1.3A terminal, watch this space!

Luckily, we were able to still make it to Satellite 2020, an event where we were able to showcase products and capabilities as well as meet and collaborate with other great companies. Even though last year did not turn out as expected for anyone we are still smiling and very excited to be able to attend Satellite 2021 later this year! Where we will have innovative new technologies to share with customers and collaborators alike.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

By Blog Post

The team at Lite Coms® would like to wish everyone a happy St. Patrick’s Day! This spring is shaping up to be a very busy time of year for us, and we like to think we have the luck of the Irish on our side, to have the continued support of our amazing customers and vendors to facilitate our growth. Let us know how you are celebrating your St. Patrick’s Day today!

St. Patrick’s Day Fun Fact: The color associated with St. Patrick’s Day was originally blue, not green!
Though we have come to associate Kelly green with the Irish and the holiday, the 5th-century saint’s official color was “Saint Patrick’s blue,” a light shade of sky blue. The switch to green was made because of the green in the Irish flag, the clover, and the island being nicknamed “The Emerald Isle”.
