Comtech Telecommunications’ Mission-Critical Technologies group has secured an order to continue providing its ongoing sustainment services for the US Army.
The order comprises $6.5m additional funding on a previously announced $124.2m contract for three years.
As part of the order, Mission-Critical will provide ongoing sustainment services and baseband equipment. To date, the contract has received funding of $95m.
Mission-Critical Technologies group aims to deliver services to conduct missions including communication on land and sea, launching or tracking a satellite and protecting the cybersecurity of their network.
Comtech Telecommunications CEO and Board chairman Fred Kornberg said: “This award further illustrates that Comtech is making an important contribution to the mission of our US Army customer by delivering reliable, secure communications systems.”
Mission-Critical is part of Comtech’s Government Solutions segment.
Last month, Comtech Telecommunication’s subsidiary Comtech EF Data won a delivery order for satellite ground station equipment. The order was placed by an undisclosed South East Asian Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The MoD selected the CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem following a request for proposal (RFP) process, and technical evaluation and testing.
As part of the order, Comtech EF Data agreed to deliver the DMD2050E MIL-STD-188-165A/STANAG 4486 Edition 3 Compliant Universal Satellite Modem to support the US Army Project Manager (PM) Tactical Network.
