Comtech Receives Additional Orders from Brazilian Military

Today's military, just like other organization, is very reliant on technology. The right communications solution can provide tactical data that can be the difference between winning and losing a battle. While developed countries have been investing in their defense R&D for decades to obtain the most sophisticated equipment, developing countries are just now catching up, and they are using their new found wealth to acquire military assets. Comtech Communications Corporation announced the company has received an additional order for $1.1 million from the Brazilian Military.

The order is for satellite spares to support the existing system the military acquired at an earlier time.

Comtech Systems (News - Alert) specializes in system design, integration, supply, and commissioning of turnkey communication systems including over-the-horizon microwave, line-of-sight microwave, and satellite. The solutions the company provides play an important role when terrestrial communications infrastructure is unavailable, is too expensive or inefficient. In military applications all those points can apply, making the Comtech solution ideal.

Through its telecommunications transmission, RF microwave amplifiers and mobile data communications, the company conducts business in the commercial and government communications market around the world.

The ComTech EF Data Solutions facilitates communications for many different government and militaries in more than 160 countries. The satcom products have been proven to be reliable with advanced functionality. The product line it offers supports:

  • Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS)
  • Military Standard (MIL-STD)-188-165A
  • Defense Information Systems Agency (News - Alert) (DISA)
  • Space Communications Protocol Standard Transport Protocol (SCPS-TP)
  • Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) Certified
  • OM-73 Scrambler/Descrambler
  • Federal Information Procession Standards (FIPS)-140-2 Level 2 Security

The Advanced VSAT Solutions provides applications for maritime and offshore communications; satellite mobile backhaul with RAN optimization; IP trunking and backhaul; corporate and enterprise networks; and emergency and disaster recovery with managed high-performance satellite communications. It incorporates advanced technologies while minimizing total cost of ownership with industry-leading bandwidth efficiencies and network optimization.

"We are extremely pleased by this order from the Brazilian Military for additional satellite spares. Once again, our long-term commitment to investing in transmission technology has firmly established Comtech as the choice for this advanced communications solution," said Fred Kornberg, president and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications (News - Alert) Corporation.
