Comtech to Develop Rapidly Deployable SATCOM Terminals for the Department of Defense

Command & Control Technologies, a subsidiary of Comtech Telecommunications’ has received $3.0 million in rapid innovation funding from the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

The funds were awarded for the continued development of the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) protected SATCOM fly away terminal in support of the Joint Communications Support Element (JCSE). This program supports the Army’s Network Modernization Strategy and the end state for the future Army Network where Warfighters will be able to fight, shoot, move, communicate, protect and sustain, and will be able to reliably communicate anywhere, anytime, in all domains, in all environments, against any foe.

The funding begins an effort by Comtech to deliver secure, protected communications to the warfighter at the battle's edge. This terminal will ensure that soldiers have continued communications even when near-peer adversaries attempt to interfere.

Comtech Telecommunications designs, develops, produces and markets innovative products, systems and services for advanced communications solutions. The Company sells products to a diverse customer base in the global commercial and government communications markets.
