Comtech Telecommunications Corp., a global leading provider of next-generation 911 emergency systems and secure wireless communications technologies, announced today, that during its fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021, it was awarded a multi-million dollar contract from an overseas agency for development of a large transportable launch tracking ground station.

“We are pleased that our long-term customer continues to rely on Comtech for yet another ground station development contract,” said Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.

The contract was awarded to Comtech’s Space and Component Technology (SCT) division, which specializes in providing ground station services in the form of turnkey site development, infrastructure, operations and maintenance of several range tracking stations in the South Pacific.
