MELVILLE, N.Y. –
January 7, 2020– Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) announced today that during its second quarter of fiscal 2020, its Orlando, Florida-based subsidiary, Comtech Systems, Inc., which is part of Comtech’s Government Solutions segment, was awarded a 10-year, $211.0 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (“IDIQ”) contract by the Cubic Mission Solutions (“Cubic”) business division of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) to provide next generation troposcatter systems in support of the U.S. Marine Corps.

In connection with this contract award, Comtech received an initial $13.4 million order to supply next generation terminals to Cubic. Delivery of the first units will support test and evaluation for the U.S. Marine Corps.
