Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Receives a $5.5 Million Order for Its Modular Transportable Troposcatter System from a Prime U.S. Defense Contractor
MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL) announced today that its
Orlando, Florida-based subsidiary, Comtech Systems, Inc., received an
order valued at $5.5 million for its Modular Transportable Troposcatter
System ("MTTS") from a prime U.S. defense contractor for end use by the
MTTS, the first truly modular, rapidly deployable, transit case-based
troposcatter system, represents a major advancement in rapidly
deployable troposcatter systems. The MTTS cases are designed to be used
in line-of-sight ("LOS"), beyond-line-of-sight ("BLOS") dual diversity,
and full over-the-horizon microwave (tropo) quad diversity applications.
The MTTS solution delivers high-throughput capacity to enable
mission-critical surveillance, situational awareness and real-time data
to remote, infrastructure-challenged locations. MTTS allows direct
transmission between sites, eliminates recurring costs, and reduces the
complexity and delay in satellite communications currently used today.
The MTTS solution enhances communications capabilities with seamless
compatibility and interoperability with legacy-fielded troposcatter
systems used currently by the U.S. Military, including the AN/TRC-170.
Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech
Telecommunications Corp., said, "This award for additional MTTS
terminals is a testament to our industry-leading and field-proven
troposcatter system technology. We are pleased that MTTS will play an
important role in delivering mission-critical bandwidth to the
