Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.3 million follow-on contract award for satellite ground equipment from an existing government customer. The order specified two models of Modems and Frequency Converters, which will be deployed to support a network expansion in Asia.
The CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem and the CDM-700 High-Speed Satellite Modem were ordered. The CDM-625 combines advanced forward error correction with DoubleTalk
bandwidth compression for maximum savings. DoubleTalk
, based on Raytheon Applied Signal Technology's patented "Adaptive Cancellation" technology, allows transmit and receive carriers of a duplex link to share the same transponder space. The combination of advanced technologies enables users to minimize OPEX/CAPEX and maximize throughput/availability without using additional transponder resources. The CDM-700 is a high-speed modem intended for operation with a range of multi-port data interfaces. The modem operates in broadcast, circuit restoration, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint applications with exceptional power and bandwidth efficiency. Also purchased were C-Band and Ku-Band Synthesized Frequency Converters that meet or exceed industry standards, and can easily be integrated and operated in any size earth station.
Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. said, “We were awarded this follow-on order based on our field-proven technologies and consistently high level of customer support.”
