Reading time ( words)

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $4.0 million contract award extension for additional Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Interface Processor (ATIP) production terminals from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). This is the second of four anticipated production year awards on the ATIP contract. Comtech completed delivery of the initial year earlier this year to support the Navy’s initial fielding of this new capability. SPAWAR has funded $24.9 million of the $40.2 million total potential contract value.

The ATIP is a Layer-2 Ethernet bridging device installed on ship, shore and submarine platforms in the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT). The ATIP program is providing significant improvements to the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) system’s performance through dynamic bandwidth management, support for higher XDR data rates, and increased throughput. Later next year, Comtech will deliver an Adaptive Coding capability to further improve the AEHF system’s performance.

“This award was made possible by our successful completion of the initial ATIP development effort and delivery of the first year of production units,” commented Dr. Stanton Sloane, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “We are proud to continue to support and enhance the capabilities of the Navy’s communications system.”
