FAA OKs Digital Angel satellite device
Thursday August 11, 1:03 pm ET

The Federal Aviation Administration has approved Digital Angel Corp.'s new satellite radio transceiver, the company said Thursday.

The CommPoint 3 Satcom Data Terminal can track a wide variety of international commercial, military aircraft and ground vehicles in any weather condition, even when traditional communication modes are disrupted, according to a press release.

The CommPoint 3, made by Digital Angel's OuterLink subsidiary, is smaller, lighter and easier to install than its predecessor, the company said.

"The FAA regulatory approval allows us to offer this product to both international commercial and military customers and utilizes advanced components to track vital equipment in locations and circumstances such as heavy storms or where aircraft are untrackable by radar," Digital Angel CEO Kevin McGrath said in a statement.

"Because we will be able to address the international and military market, this new product has the potential to drive revenue increases which could be many times OuterLink's existing revenue base," McGrath said.

OuterLink, based in Lowell, Mass., provides satellite-based mobile asset tracking and data-messaging systems.

South St. Paul-based Digital Angel (AMEX: DOC - News) makes animal identification and tracking systems. The company's shares were up 11 cents, or 3.1 percent, to $3.70 in trading Thursday morning.
