Comtech to supply troposcatter equipment to Iraq

28th September 2018 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Comtech Systems has received a $9.1 million contract to supply equipment and services in support of an existing C4ISR maritime surveillance system in service with the Iraq Navy, the company announced on 24 September.

The contract will see Comtech supply thermal imaging radar, and advanced digital troposcatter communications systems and backhaul microwave terminals.

Troposcatter systems provide high capacity, low-latency data links for over-the-horizon distances, without the need to rely on satellites or multiple line-of-sight repeaters. The communications network will provide radar and sensor data to an existing C2 facility.

Fred Kornberg, president and chief executive officer of Comtech Telecommunications, said: ‘I am excited to be able to announce this important contract with a new foreign government end customer. While the sales cycles for opportunities of this type are long, this win is further evidence that demand for troposcatter equipment around the world is growing.'
