Comtech Telecommunications Awarded $2.5 M to Support US Navy Satellite Communication Systems

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) announced today that its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., has recently been awarded four contracts totaling $2.5 million for high-power dual-band traveling wave tube amplifiers (“TWTAs”) for the U.S. Navy satellite communications systems.

Comtech Xicom’s XTRD-2000C/X provides 2 KW of power from a rack-mounted system below-deck. The XTD-450T is antenna-mounted and provides more than 350W of power. These amplifiers will help provide high priority, high capacity voice, data, and video to combat and support vessels. The U.S. Navy terminals utilize X-band over the Defense Satellite Communications System (“DSCS”) or allied military satellites and C-band over commercial satellites.


Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., stated, “Comtech Xicom’s high-power amplifiers provide reliable high data rate communications and are a critical component for the U.S. Navy’s communications infrastructure. We are proud to receive these orders and to support this ongoing program.”
