US Army Awards $544M Satcom, Engineering Support Contract to Comtech

The U.S. Army has selected Comtech to provide satellite communications and professional engineering services under a potential $544 million task order. 

Comtech will supply satellite and terrestrial networking communications technologies in support of the Global Field Service Representative program, which provides communications and IT infrastructure services to the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and NATO.

The award is part of the 10-year, $5.1 billion Global Tactical Communications Systems II indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle. A position on the IDIQ was secured in 2020, Comtech said.

According to the company, its defense technologies and services portfolio is designed to enhance Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control, a Department of Defense warfighting concept that connects military forces, weapons, communications capabilities and databases of the United States and its allies. 

Implementing CJADC2 will enable commanders to create informed decisions quickly and maintain strategic and tactical advantage on the battlefield. At the CIO Summit hosted by the Potomac Officers Club in May, Lt. Gen. Mary O’Brien, chief information officer and director for command, control, communications and computers/cyber of the Joint Staff J6, said the U.S. is currently working with its partners to make their systems interoperable and create a combined coalition force.
