MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
June 1, 2015-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) announced
today that its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom
Technology Inc., received an order from a domestic integrator for $1.1
million for its new, Super-Power Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTAs).
These high-tech amplifiers were first introduced at the Satellite 2015
show in March.
"We are extremely pleased that customers are reacting positively to our
new Super-Power TWTAs. We believe this order is the first of many we
expect to receive," said Dr. Stanton Sloane, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
As shown on the Comtech Xicom Technology website, (www.xicomtech.com/index-superpower-twtas.aspx),
our new Super-Power TWTAs offer twice the RF power of traditional TWTAs
with only a small increase in size and weight, using equivalent prime
power. This capability allows users to realize significant reductions in
space requirements, power costs, and system complexity, with increased
rain-fade margin, over systems using traditional TWTA products, and in
particular over traditional systems using Klystron Power Amplifiers.
Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., a world leader in high-power amplifiers,
manufactures a wide variety of tube-based and solid-state power
amplifiers for military and commercial satellite uplink applications.
The product range encompasses power levels from 8 W to 3 kW, with
frequency coverage in sub-bands within the 2 GHz to 45 GHz spectrum.
Amplifiers are available for fixed and ground-based, ship-board, and
airborne mobile applications. Please visit www.xicomtech.com
