“We are pleased to continue providing support to ensure reliable text messaging services,” said Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “As evidenced by the outbreak of COVID, text-messaging remains a vital part of the core telecommunications infrastructure and our customer depends on Comtech’s messaging platforms to bring consistent service to their end-users.”

Sold around the world to mobile network operators, government agencies, and Fortune 100 enterprises, its platforms locate, map, track and message.

Like a cancer that spreads untreated until it becomes an urgent problem, the U.S. defense community is facing a small but growing problem that is increasingly undermining U.S. military readiness and technological dominance. The problem is lead—specifically, the lead-alloy solders that traditionally have been used to attach electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Over the last 15 years, the commercial electronics industry has shifted to lead-free solders, prompted by environmental health regulations in Europe and elsewhere. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its contractors never made the switch and are still heavily reliant on leaded solders. Now, leaded electronics are becoming harder to find and more outdated.
