Comtech, a leading provider of satellite communications and professional engineering services, has been awarded a lucrative contract by the U.S. Army. The contract, with a maximum value of $544 million, supports the Global Field Service Representative (GFSR) program, which provides crucial communications and IT infrastructure support for the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and NATO.
Under the terms of the contract, Comtech will provide onsite professional engineering services and supply satellite and terrestrial networking communications technologies for the project manager tactical network.
This contract is a task order awarded on Comtech’s existing contract with the U.S. Army, which is part of the 10-year, $5.1 billion Global Tactical Communications Systems (GTACS) II indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle. Comtech was selected as one of multiple GTACS II IDIQ awardees in 2020.
Comtech CEO Ken Peterman expressed his satisfaction with the contract award, stating:
“This contract award further demonstrates the differentiated value of our networked communications technologies, as well as the unique, comprehensive domain expertise of our people providing professional engineering services for critical U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) missions across a comprehensive array of government programs.”
This is not the first contract win for Comtech with the U.S. Army. They recently secured a $48.6 million order for Enterprise Digital Intermediate Frequency Multi-Carrier (EDIM) modems.
Comtech’s success in securing these contracts highlights their expertise and reputation in the field of satellite communications and professional engineering services, particularly within the defense sector.
