January 17, 2018

Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, received a follow-on contract to provide long-term support for the Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Interface Processor (ATIP) production terminals in support of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). This new contract is a 10-year IDIQ contract with a 5-year base and 5 one-year options. The total potential contract value is $19.1 million.

ATIP is a Layer-2 Ethernet bridging device installed on ship, shore and submarine platforms in the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT). The ATIP program provides 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.

"This new contract will provide long-term ATIP hardware and software support and maintenance in addition to providing additional ATIP production units as the Navy continues to deploy the ATIP systems," commented Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
