$9.1 Million Contract to Support Existing Maritime Surveillance System
Comtech Telecommunications announced on 24 September that its Comtech Systems subsidiary has been awarded a $9.1 million sole-sourced contract from the Program Executive Office (PEO) Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I), International C4I Integration Program Office (PMW 740), to supply equipment and services in support of an existing C4I maritime surveillance system owned by the Iraqi Navy.
Comtech will be supplying thermal imaging radar in conjunction with its advanced digital troposcatter communications systems and backhaul microwave terminals. The communications network will provide radar and sensor data to an existing command and control facility.
“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 U.S. FMS and Iraqi Navy on this and future opportunities,” commented Comtech Telecommunications President and CEO, Fred Kornberg.
