MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
April 10, 2017--Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:
CMTL) announced today that during its third quarter of fiscal 2017, its
Orlando, Florida-based subsidiary, Comtech Systems, Inc., which is part
of Comtech's Government Solutions segment, received a follow-on order
for the first ever shipboard troposcatter system to meet the U.S.
Military's growing requirement for offshore, beyond the horizon
communications for ships underway. Total orders received for this
product during fiscal 2017 have aggregated $1.6 million.
This shipboard side of the system is a self-contained terminal featuring
a three-axis stabilized antenna in conjunction with Comtech's tropo
radio terminal. This maritime terminal is designed to be quickly
deployed on and off a variety of marine crafts to give the military
maximum mission flexibility. The shore side terminal uses Comtech
Systems' proven Modular Transportable Transmission Tropo System (MTTS),
including its tracking Ultra tropo antenna and its 1 Kw Solid State
Amplifiers. The system is capable of providing voice, video, and data
communications to vessels 50+ nautical miles off shore. This is a major
achievement made possible by Comtech Systems' advanced 50 Mb/s digital
troposcatter modem. This project for the U.S. Military builds on other
firsts by Comtech which includes providing maritime troposcatter systems
to floating and fixed platforms in the oil and gas industry.
Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech
Telecommunications Corp., said, "This first sale of military maritime
troposcatter systems represents another breakthrough moment in Comtech's
history, further demonstrating our ability to recognize the
communications challenges of the U.S. military and apply Comtech's
industry-leading technology in new environments to meet these needs."
