MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
March 20, 2018-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL)

totaling approximately $2.0 million to provide 50 Mb/s tactical
troposcatter equipment to a leading supplier to the UAE Armed Forces.
The Modular Transportable Transmission System (MTTS) troposcatter
terminals purchased will be delivered to the UAE Armed Forces as a proof
of concept vehicle to determine how the MTTS fits into their existing
military communications scenario. Comtech's advanced 50 MB tropo modem

modern field-proven deployable troposcatter system, Comtech's MTTS is a
natural choice for the UAE Armed Forces."
