Comtech receives major order from prime US defence contractor
Comtech Systems has 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 U.S. Army.
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 battlefield.”
