Comtech PST receives multi-million dollar contract award
Comtech Telecommunications has announced that during its second quarter of fiscal 2019, its New York-based subsidiary, Comtech PST Corp., which is part of Comtech’s Government Solutions segment, received a multi-million dollar contract award for solid-state, high-power RF amplifier systems from Northrop Grumman Corporation for use on the US Navy’s Next Generation Jammer – Low Band (NGJ-LB) Demonstration of Existing Technologies (DET).
