Comtech Receives $1.8 Million Contract for Advanced TDMA Interface Processor Terminals

Comtech EF Data Corp, a part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment has received a $1.8 million contract award extension from US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). The contract underlines additional Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Interface Processor (ATIP) production terminals and Engineering Support Services for SPAWAR.

The ATIP is a Layer-2 Ethernet bridging device installed on ship, shore and submarine platforms in the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT). The program has been providing significant improvements to the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) system's performance through dynamic bandwidth management, support for higher XDR data rates, and increased throughput.

The contract extension also includes exercising options under an Engineering Support Services option for Comtech to participate in integration and test activities to validate the U.S. Navy’s planned PPPoE interface between the ATIP and Automated Digital Network System (ADNS).
