Comtech EF Data Receives $1.2 Million Satellite Ground Station Equipment Order

April 14, 2011


Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.2 million order for satellite ground station communications equipment. The order was from a systems integrator and will be used by a Latin American country as part of their military network.


The military end-customer specified that they required Comtech's CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modems and LPOD Block Up Converters. The CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem combines advanced forward error correction with revolutionary DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression, allowing for maximum savings under all conditions. The combination of advanced technologies in the CDM-625 enables multi-dimensional optimization. Comtech's LPOD Block Up Converter eliminates the traditional requirement for the modem to supply a DC power source and a 10 MHz reference to the Block Up Converters and Low Noise Block Converters. 


"This order demonstrates the continued reliance on our products by foreign military customers who acknowledge our best in class products by deploying them to support mission-critical communications," said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
