June 9, 2014-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., was awarded a $4.2 million order for DMD2050E Satellite Modems. A systems integrator ordered the equipment on behalf of the United States Army. The modems will be deployed to support mission-critical communications associated with a major military program.
The DMD2050E Satellite Modem is compliant with MIL-STD-188-165A, STANAG 4486 Edition 3, the draft standard MIL-STD-188-165B, and the IESS-308, IESS-309, IESS-310 and IESS-315 commercial standards. The modem provides highly advanced and bandwidth-efficient forward error correction and modulation capabilities. When integrated with the revolutionary DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression, users can minimize required satellite bandwidth and maximize both throughput and availability without using additional transponder resources. The best fit for the DMD2050E is for communications at-the-pause, flyaway and integrated satellite terminal communication applications.
