Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Receives $1.0 Million Equipment Order for Air Traffic Control Communications Network in Latin America

May 16, 2019

MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

May 16, 2019-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) announced today that during its third quarter of fiscal 2019, its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, received a $1.0 million equipment order for an Air Traffic Control (“ATC”) communication network in Latin America.

The order specified NetPerformer™ Satellite Routers developed by Comtech EF Data Corp.’s subsidiary, Memotec, which deliver highly reliable, secured communications across hybrid terrestrial lines, as well as microwave and satellite transmissions. The NetPerformer platform combines the functionality of a data router, a multiplexer and a voice gateway in a single device, enabling users to create converged networks and transport mission-critical information over satellite or terrestrial links.

The Memotec NetPerformer ensures that Air Traffic Management (“ATM”) services are prioritized adequately and cost efficiently delivered using the best available path at any time, thus enabling ATC networks to be compliant with EUROCAE WG67 ATM standards. The NetPerformer meets stringent service quality requirements for delay, jitter and packet loss, and compensates for transmission network delays, enabling Air to Ground VHF radio communications and radar information to transit seamlessly across terrestrial or satellite links. It is the only solution compliant with VHF-AA (“VHF Extended Range”) EUROCAE specifications. As a voice and VHF over IP gateway solution compliant with EUROCAE WG67 ED137-B, the platform is a key enabler for the evolution of ATC services towards all-IP networks.

“We are honored to have been selected to supply equipment for this mission-critical network,” commented Fred Kornberg, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Our NetPerformer product is deployed in networks all around the world, delivering cost-effective, robust and reliable operation in the most demanding applications, such as Air Traffic Control.”
