A subsidiary of Comtech Telecommunications has secured a $1.9 million contract modification for engineering support services backing a U.S. Navy network connection device.
Comtech EF Data will provide support for enhancements to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command’s Advanced Time Division Multiple Access Interface Processor production terminals, the company said Wednesday.
Fred Kornberg, president and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications, said the authorized funding under the contract modification will facilitate ATIP updates with the aim to allow use of the ATIP Adaptive Coding system.
The engineering support services contract line item is part of the engineering support services option included in the original ATIP contract for program planned improvements to the Navy’s advanced extremely-high-frequency protected military satellite communications system.
The ATIP program aims to provide dynamic bandwidth management, increased throughput and support for high-level extreme data rates to enhance the AEHF system’s performance.
ATIP, a Layer-2 Ethernet routing device, is used for ship, shore and submarine platforms in the Navy Multiband Terminal.
