Comtech to Deliver Communications Support Under $544M Army Contract

Comtech Telecommunications has received the green light from the U.S. Army Contracting Command to deliver support services under the $544 million Global Field Service Representative task order awarded in October.

Comtech will provide onsite engineering services and satellite and terrestrial networking communications technologies for the Project Manager Tactical Network in support of the GFSR program. The GFSR program aims to provide communications and IT infrastructure to the U.S. military and NATO, ensuring that U.S. and allied forces will have access to resilient and secure connectivity for all-domain operations.

The task order was awarded under the 10-year, $5.1 billion Global Tactical Communications Systems II indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Comtech said.

The effort builds on other tasks the company received to support the Army.

In October, the service awarded Comtech a $48.6 million contract to design, develop, test and deliver Enterprise Digital Intermediate Frequency Multi-Carrier satellite communications modems. Apart from building the EDIMs, the company was also tasked with providing hardware and software to enhance the modems’ performance.

In July, Fairwinds Technologies awarded Comtech a $30 million contract to provide its Troposcatter Family of Systems to the Army, supporting the service’s beyond-line-of-sight communications capabilities.
