Comtech Systems has received a follow-on order for shipboard troposcatter systems for the US military, the company announced on 10 April.

The system supports offshore, beyond-the-horizon communications for ships underway.

The shipboard side of the system is a self-contained terminal featuring a three-axis stabilised antenna in conjunction with Comtech's tropo radio terminal. This terminal is designed to be deployed on and off a variety of vessels quickly to give operators maximum mission flexibility.

The shore-side terminal uses Comtech Systems' Modular Transportable Transmission Tropo System, including its tracking Ultra tropo antenna and its 1Kw solid amplifiers.

The system provides voice, video and data communications to vessels more than 50 nautical miles offshore, enabled by Comtech Systems' advanced 50Mb/s digital troposcatter modem.
