Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, received a delivery order in support of the recently awarded contract from the U.S. Naval Warfare Systems Command. This latest delivery order, against the $59.0 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, is for $3.0 million.
The delivery order specified Comtech EF Data’s SLM-5650B Satellite Modems and firmware upgrades. The SLM-5650B Satellite Modem is Comtech’s latest generation modem product targeted for critical government and military applications. The SLM-5650B leverages the heritage and feature set of the SLM-5650A modem. The SLM-5650B supports backwards compatibility/inter-operability for existing SLM-5650A networks while providing enhanced performance and an expanded feature set. The commercially available modems will support satellite communications and interoperability across the Navy’s platforms and shore sites.
“It is an honor to have been selected by the U.S. Navy to supply our latest generation infrastructure solutions to support mission-critical satellite communications,” said Fred Kornberg, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
