Comtech EF Data Receives $1.8 Million Order for Modems to Support Military Network Expansion

May 7, 2012

Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.8 million order from a government systems integrator for modems with DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth compression. The U.S. military will utilize the modems in deployable terminals to support a satellite-based network expansion for battlefield communications.

The order specified the DMD2050 MIL-STD-188-165A Compliant Universal Satellite Modem. The DMD2050 supports the widest possible range of U.S. government and commercial standards. It provides highly advanced and bandwidth-efficient forward error correction and a complete range of modulation types. Given the U.S. government’s IP-centric focus, advanced options for the DMD2050 were included in the order including bandwidth compression and Low Density Parity Check (“LDPC”) forward error correction.

“The U.S. military is currently utilizing our DMD2050 modems to support mission-critical communications,” said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Based on the field-proven performance and bandwidth efficiencies, the newly ordered modems will seamlessly support the U.S. military’s network expansion.”
