January 29, 2014--Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., was awarded a $3.1 million order from a government systems integrator for DoubleTalk ® Carrier-in-Carrier ® powered DMD2050E Satellite Modems. The equipment will be deployed to support the U.S. government’s integrated satellite terminal communications.
The DMD2050E Satellite Modems ordered will utilize the revolutionary and award-winning DoubleTalk ® Carrier-in-Carrier ® bandwidth compression. DoubleTalk ® Carrier-in-Carrier ® is based on Raytheon Applied Signal Technology’s patented “Adaptive Cancellation” technology, which allows transmit and receive carriers of a duplex link to share the same transponder space. DoubleTalk ® Carrier-in-Carrier ® allows users to achieve spectral efficiencies that cannot be achieved with traditional links. The technology facilitates both transponder bandwidth and power savings. When integrated with the advanced forward error correction and modulation capabilities available in the DMD2050E Satellite Modems, maximum and state-of-the-art performance can be achieved under all conditions.
“The U.S. government selected our DoubleTalk ® Carrier-in-Carrier ® bandwidth compression technology based on its unique bandwidth-savings capabilities,” commented Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Utilizing our technology will enable the U.S. government to better leverage their satellite space segment resources.”
