MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
April 19, 2018-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL)
announced today that during its third quarter of fiscal 2018, its
Orlando-based subsidiary, Comtech Systems, Inc, which is part of
Comtech's Government Solutions segment, received orders of
approximately $6.5 million to provide tactical troposcatter equipment
and to design and install ISR Video Downlink Systems for the Armed
Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
The Modular Transportable Transmission System (MTTS) troposcatter
terminals will enable the Armed Forces to establish data links between
island locations that were previously beyond the reach of high bandwidth
terrestrial communications. These systems are an integral part of the
AFP C4I Modernization plan, and will be utilized to transport various
types of data from remote locations to command centers for real time
decision making. The Video Downlink systems will allow the AFP airborne
assets to deliver ISR data for distribution to ground-based decision
makers in real time, and are designed to support future upgrades of AFP
Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech
Telecommunications Corp., commented, "We believe the award by the Armed
Forces of the Philippines demonstrates our long-standing troposcatter
market leadership position and our belief that many other international
countries can benefit from incorporating troposcatter systems in complex
command and control systems. As the only modern field-proven deployable
troposcatter system, the Comtech MTTS is a natural choice for the AFP.
We look forward to the opportunity to support the AFP modernization
across a range of C4ISTAR technologies."
