Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced that its Melville, NY-based subsidiary, Comtech PST Corp., received a $4.8 M contract from a major domestic OEM to supply high power amplifiers.

These amplifiers are key components in a complex Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) system used to interrogate aircraft to determine their friend or foe status. This order supplements a significant installed base of Comtech IFF high power amplifiers previously delivered to this customer.

Fred Kornberg, president and chief executive officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., said "This order reaffirms Comtech's product performance, quality and reliability, as well as the continuation of our relationship with this premier supplier of defense systems to the US Government."
