CHANDLER, Ariz. – June 26, 2024– Comtech (NASDAQ: CMTL) (the “Company”), a global technology leader, today announced the North Central Texas Emergency Communications District (“NCT9-1-1”) awarded the Company a contract to deliver Next Generation 9-1-1 (“NG9-1-1”) services that will further modernize NCT9-1-1’s infrastructure. The NCT9-1-1 contract includes a five-year base award, as well as three additional two-year option periods, with a not to exceed value of approximately $30.0 million.

“As a longstanding partner, Comtech is working with NCT9-1-1 to bring forward new emergency response capabilities that ensure residents and visitors get the help they need when lives are on the line and seconds matter most,” said John Whitehead, General Manager of Comtech’s Safety and Security Technologies (“SST”) Division. “This contract further demonstrates the trust of our public safety partners in the United States, and we are honored to continue working with the NCT9-1-1 to deliver a purpose-built public safety architecture that meets the needs of communities and individuals in crisis.”

We are looking forward to continuous improvement with Comtech as we forge the future of emergency communications together.”
