Comtech Telecommunications president and chief executive officer Fred Kornberg said: “I am excited to be able to announce this important contract with a new foreign government end customer.

“While the sales cycles for opportunities of this type are long, this win is further evidence that demand for troposcatter equipment around the world is growing. We look forward to working with the US foreign military sales (FMS) and Iraqi Navy on this and future opportunities.”

The company has received the maritime surveillance system support contract during its first quarter of fiscal year (FY) 2019.

Based in Orlando, Florida, US, Comtech Systems is part of the parent company’s Government Solutions segment.
