Comtech Telecommunications gets $2.7 million order from US Marine Corps
Nov 28, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) said that its Orlando, Florida-based subsidiary, Comtech Systems, Inc. has received an order for additional AN/TRC-170 modem upgrade kits totaling $2.7 million to complete the upgrade of the US Marine Corps fleet of AN/TRC-170s.
This additional order of kits, which will be used by the US Marine Corps to upgrade AN/TRC-170 troposcatter terminals to 16 megabits per second, incorporate Comtech's patented Turbo Product Code forward error correction technology. These field-proven, battle-hardened modems also include automatic power control, which allows for lower transmitted power when communication channel conditions permit, reducing the risk of unfriendly intercept and interference with other communications. The increased capability of the upgraded AN/TRC-170 terminals will reduce the dependence on satellite communications in areas of conflict by offering an effective alternative communications transmission medium.
Comtech Telecommunications Corp. designs, develops, produces and markets innovative products, systems and services for advanced communications solutions.
