Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today, that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, its Orlando, Florida-based subsidiary, Comtech Systems, Inc., which is part of Comtech’s Government Solutions segment, has received an order for approximately $1.0 million from ADS, Inc. for COMET terminals to be used by a U.S. Army Special Operations Command.
COMET, which stands for Compact Over-the-horizon Mobile Expeditionary Terminal, is a rapidly deployable, low power, airline checkable, medium range, OTH microwave troposcatter terminal. COMET is ideally suited for situations where high bandwidth backhaul communications are required, extending critical services into areas where there is no communications infrastructure, or the infrastructure has been destroyed.
Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., stated, “We are extremely pleased by this order of the Comtech COMET, for use by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command and we expect many more orders in the future from both U.S. military and international customers.”
