Comtech Telecommunications Corp. awarded US$1.7 million contract for COMET Terminals
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 2021, a non-US NATO military customer awarded Comtech a US$1.7 million contract for multiple COMET terminals. This represents the second procurement of COMET terminals by a non-U.S. NATO military customer, in additional to the multiple COMET terminals already procured by US Special Operations Command (SOCOM).
COMET, which stands for compact over-the-horizon mobile expeditionary terminal, is a rapidly deployable, low power, airline checkable, medium range, OTH microwave troposcatter terminal. COMET is ideally suited for situations where high bandwidth backhaul communications are required, extending critical services into areas where there is no communications infrastructure, or the infrastructure has been destroyed.
“We are extremely pleased to witness the adoption of COMET by NATO partner militaries,” said Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “We sense strong market demand for our COMET terminal and look forward to additional COMET orders in the future, from both US military and international customers.”
