Comtech Telecommunications has received a contract from a non-US Nato military customer for compact over-the-horizon (OTH) mobile expeditionary terminal (COMET) terminals.

The latest order represents the second procurement of COMET terminals by a non-US Nato military customer and includes the supply of an undisclosed number of the systems.

The $1.7m contract was awarded during the company’s fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021.

COMET is a low-power OTH microwave troposcatter airline checkable terminal. The medium-range system can be deployed rapidly.

The company claims that the COMET terminal is suitable for scenarios where high-bandwidth backhaul communications are required.

It can be easily deployed in environments where there is no communications infrastructure or infrastructure is ruined.

Comtech Telecommunications board chairman and CEO Fred Kornberg said: “We are extremely pleased to witness the adoption of COMET by Nato partner militaries.

“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.”
