Sweden to get Comtech troposcatter systems
Comtech Systems has been awarded a $2.2 million contract to provide deployable troposcatter systems to the Swedish armed forces, the company announced on 2 November.
The contract comes after a successful multi-year evaluation of Comtech's commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) troposcatter products. The evaluation included field testing in various operational environments, including higher northern latitudes.
Comtech will supply its MTTS deployable terminals - integrated troposcatter terminals that use the company's CS4400 frequency converter system, CS67500 50Mbps troposcatter modem and 500W solid state power amplifiers.
The troposcatter products have been modified to meet Sweden's standards and requirements. They will be used by the military for rapidly deployable communications.
Deployable troposcatter systems can be used to augment existing communications toolkits with high-bandwidth, long range alternatives to satellite communications to enable critical communication links under a wide variety of operational scenarios.
