Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Awarded $1.1 Million Order for High-Power Amplifiers

MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- July 29, 2013--Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NAS: CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.1 million order for high-power amplifiers from a global systems integrator. The amplifiers will support a new commercial network in the Commonwealth of Independent States region.

The order specified the HPOD Ku-Band High-Power Amplifiers. The HPOD features field-replaceable power supplies and redundant system control. The units utilize low loss combining technique and MCP-based temperature versus gain compensation. The phase-combined systems allow the outputs of two amplifiers to be summed together for even higher power. With the unique approach to L-Band frequency conversion, the optional "Smart BUC" functionality eliminates DC and 10 MHz from the input coax. Providing more value than competitive solutions, the base units include temperature compensation, sample ports, power monitor, field-replaceable power factor corrected supply and full remote monitor and control capabilities.

Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., said, "This order is an example of the industry's confidence in our rugged, weatherproof and reliable amplifier solutions to support commercial networks."
