Florida-based Comtech Systems, a Comtech Telecommunications Corp. subsidiary, was recently awarded a $9.1 million sole-sourced contract to support a C4I system in service with the Iraqi Navy.
Awarded by the Program Executive Office (PEO) Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I), International C4I Integration Program Office (PMW 740), the contract will see the company supply equipment and services in support of the C4I surveillance and reconnaissance system.
Comtech will be supplying thermal imaging radar in conjunction with Comtech’s digital troposcatter communications systems and backhaul microwave terminals. The communications network will provide radar and sensor data to an existing Command and Control facility.
In commenting on this award, Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., stated: “I am excited to be able to announce this important contract with a new foreign government end customer. While the sales cycles for opportunities of this type are long, this win is further evidence that demand for troposcatter equipment around the world is growing. We look forward to working with the US FMS and Iraqi Navy on this and future opportunities.”
