Comtech announced today that the company recently secured multiple orders for significant quantities of its CDM-780 high-speed software-defined modems. These modems will be delivered to innovative, next-generation satellite operators as well as to the US Department of Defense who will be assessing, evaluating, and fielding these modems in a variety of scenarios to enable broad scale government and commercial deployments to provide end users with access to high-speed connectivity in some of the hardest to reach places in the world.

“Our CDM-780 is uniquely positioned to support the blending of communications services across multiple, diverse satellite orbits and networks,” said Ken Peterman, President and CEO, Comtech. “These contracts illustrate our continuing technology leadership and fluency in future networking capabilities that can help our customers democratize access to communications and empower individuals, communities, businesses, and governments across the globe.”
