Comtech Telecommunications Corp. has announced that during its second quarter of fiscal year 2021, its Mission-Critical Technologies group, which is part of Comtech’s Government Solutions segment, was awarded a contract valued up to $235.7 million to provide the U.S. Army with ongoing system refurbishments, sustainment services and baseband equipment. This effort will support the sustainment of the Army’s AN/TSC-198 Secret Internet Protocol Router (“SIPR”) and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router (“NIPR”) Access Point (“SNAP”) family of ground satellite terminals, to include spare parts, repairs, upgrades, refurbishments, logistics and engineering services, and training.
The total contract value includes a base year award and three one-year option periods exercisable by the U.S. Army. The $57.9 million base year award ceiling has been initially funded $11.5 million by the U.S. Army, with additional funding expected to occur over the remaining base year performance period.
“Comtech is honored to remain the U.S. Army’s trusted partner in providing refurbishments, sustainment services and baseband equipment. We are pleased that we have won this competitive solicitation, further reinforcing our legacy of supporting the U.S. Army,” said Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
The Mission-Critical Technologies group is focused on ensuring its customers are able to successfully carry out their mission, whether that be communicating in an austere environment on land or at sea, launching or tracking a satellite, or protecting the cyber security posture of their network.
