Comtech Mobile Datacom has received an initial $11.7 million order to provide several thousand of its next generation MT-2025 mobile satellite transceivers in support of the US Army's Blue Force Tracking-2 (BFT-2) system, the company announced on 21 February.

The company expects to begin shipments during the second half of its fiscal year 2018.

The BFT-2 system is part of the US Army's Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) programme and provides global real-time situational awareness and networking capabilities for US soldiers.

Comtech's next generation MT-2025 transceiver, also known as the Blue Force Tracker-2 high capacity satellite transceiver, meets BFT-2 protocols, provides reliability and is backward compatible with the US Army's Blue-Force Tracking-1 system (BFT-1).

Comtech currently provides support for the BFT-1 system and has shipped over 100,000 BFT-1 mobile satellite transceivers.
