Comtech Wins Contract for HTS System Amplifiers

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) announced today that its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, received a Ka-band high-power amplifier contract for over $2.0 million from a leading satellite communications (SATCOM) operator. These amplifiers will be deployed on three continents to launch a major new High Throughput Satellite (HTS) system.

High Throughput Satellites are a new generation of spacecraft, capable of delivering vast throughput when compared to conventional satellite systems by using spot beams for frequency re-use and increased gain. Many HTS systems operate at Ka-band where more spectrum is available, leading to further increased capacity.
