Army orders $27.5 million in Comtech tracking system

Newsday Business Briefs

Melville defense contractor Comtech Telecommunications Corp. says it has received new orders worth $27.5 million from the U.S. Army for a vehicle tracking and communications system that has proved valuable in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and in domestic emergencies such as Hurricane Katrina.

Comtech said it got the new orders as part of an existing Army contract for MT-2012 satellite transceivers. The Movement Tracking Systems are made by Comtech Mobile Datacom Corp., a Germantown, Md., subsidiary, and allow the military to track its vehicles and communicate with them via satellite links, even in deserts and other isolated war zones, eliminating the need for radio repeaters or other hardware.  See the original here
