Comtech awarded $4.2 M for DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier satellite modems
The DMD2050E Satellite Modem is compliant with MIL-STD-188-165A, STANAG 4486 Edition 3, the draft standard MIL-STD-188-165B, and the IESS-308, IESS-309, IESS-310 and IESS-315 commercial standards. The modem provides highly advanced and bandwidth-efficient forward error correction and modulation capabilities. When integrated with the revolutionary DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression, users can minimize required satellite bandwidth and maximize both throughput and availability without using additional transponder resources. The best fit for the DMD2050E is for communications at-the-pause, flyaway and integrated satellite terminal communication applications.
“Our satellite modems are utilized in the majority of the Department of Defense’s tactical terminal programs,” commented Fred Kornberg, president and chief executive officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “This order demonstrates the U.S. Government’s confidence in Comtech to supply infrastructure products for significant communication programs.”
