Gilat Satellite Networks revenues declined to $54.6 million in the 2009 third quarter from the $65.3 million mark it achieved in the same period of 2008, according to the company's latest financial results, released Nov. 16.

While Gilat's net income increased during the quarter to $2.5 million from a net loss of $500,000 in the 2008 third quarter, the company's nine-month income stands at $1.5 million - well short of the $5.3 million it reported at this time last year.

SIGS will focus on expanding our reach to new customers including the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, the Intelligence community and government related agencies," said Levinberg.
