Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) has announced that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech´s Commercial Solutions segment, received a USD 1.1 million order for satellite ground station equipment from a South East Asia Ministry of Defense, the company said.
This initial order of SCPC modems and complementary redundancy switches is part of a network upgrade which could expand to more than 2,000 units.
