Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Introduces New Micro Deployable X/Y Antennas to the LEO/MEO and HAPS Markets

March 22, 2019– Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL)
announced today that its Command & Control Technologies group’s, Space &
Component Technology division, which is part of Comtech’s Government
Solutions segment, introduced an exciting line of transportable, full
motion antennas for tracking Low Earth Orbit (“LEO”) and Medium Earth
Orbit (“MEO”) satellites and High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites (“HAPS”).
The Micro Deployable X/Y Tracking Antennas utilize the same two-axis
pedestal technology and control software used on Comtech’s larger X/Y
systems, thereby eliminating the keyhole at zenith, cable wrap, and
backlash problems found on traditional elevation/azimuth (El/Az)
tracking antennas. These advantages of the X/Y design are now offered in
very small and lightweight packages. This highly cost effective, full
hemispheric coverage solution set can be transported on a commercial
airliner and can be assembled for operation by one individual in less
than 30 minutes without special equipment.

“The introduction of the Micro Deployable X/Y Terminals caps a
successful year of market expansion for the industry’s most extensive
and mature line of X/Y antenna systems, as well as a full range of high
wind rated radomes,” said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Comtech will continue to
bring highly reliable and innovative products to the LEO/MEO and HAPS

The Micro Deployable X/Y Tracking Antennas come in three sizes: Series A
that can hold 30cm – 60cm reflectors, Series B that can hold 80 cm –
1.2m reflectors, and Series C that can hold 1.4m – 1.6m reflectors.
Comtech offers the antenna systems in single and multi-band frequencies
from L-band to Q-band. The antenna includes a GPS system that provides
precision time and terminal position, and pointing accuracy better than
0.1 degree.

With a flexible system configuration, low power consumption, and high
reliability, the Micro Deployable X/Y Tracking Antennas include Ethernet
(TCP/IP) remote control for monitoring and control based on a Linux
operating system. Additional features include a TLE-based program track
satellite scheduler and precision carbon composites reflectors. This
system does not require significant maintenance.

Comtech’s Space and Component Technology (“SCT”) division of Cypress,
California, has specialized for over 40 years in providing ground system
services in the form of turn-key site development, infrastructure,
operations and maintenance of several range tracking stations in the
South Pacific. Over the past 16 years, SCT added the most extensive line
of LEO/MEO X/Y tracking antennas in the industry. Using the concept of
product families and platform-based product development to increase
variety, shorten lead-times, and reduce costs without compromising
system performance, Comtech today can offer a product range with generic
‘family’ features from 30 cm to 13-meter apertures, to include auto
tracking systems as well as a range of deployable, trailer mounted, or
fixed systems. For more information, visit
