Comtech Telecommunications Corp. engages in the design, development, production, and marketing of products, systems and services for advanced communications solutions. Segments The company conducts its business through two segments, Commercial Solutions and Government Solutions. Commercial Solutions segment The Commercial Solutions segment serves commercial customers and smaller government customers, such as state and local governments, which require advanced communication technologies to meet their needs. This segment also serves certain large government customers (including the U.S. government) that have requirements for off-the-shelf commercial equipment. This segment is a major provider of satellite communications (such as satellite earth station modems and traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs)), public safety systems (such as NG911 technologies), and enterprise application technologies (such as messaging and trusted location-based technologies). Key Markets and Technology Solutions Communication Technologies The company offers communication technologies with particular expertise in the satellite communications industry. Its Commercial Solutions segment manufactures majority of the satellite-based communication equipment the company sells to its customers. The company offers communication technologies and products, including its single carrier per channel (SCPC) satellite modems, solid-state amplifiers, Heights networking platform and advanced very small aperture terminal products. The end-market applications that are driving demand for its satellite-based communication technologies include: Satellite-Based Cellular Backhaul: The company serves the high-performance, high availability needs of satellite-based cellular backhaul through sales of its primary SCPC modems and solid-state amplifiers. New High Throughput Satellites: There are approximately 100 high throughput satellites (HTS) payloads and satellites expected to launch. As service providers work to offer connectivity to these high-speed, high-bandwidth satellites and expand their networks to handle the demand for new HTS applications, they would require new installations and upgrades of equipment. High Definition and Ultra-High Definition Broadcasting: The company offers SCPC-based modems, its Ka-frequency based 500 Watt TWTA, its Heights products and its SuperPower TWTAs, which could double TWTA output power and provide direct replacement for bandwidth deficient klystron power amplifiers. In-Flight Connectivity: The deployment of in-flight connectivity and entertainment systems by airlines around the world is creating opportunities for the company to serve as a key supplier of amplifier components used for in-flight Ku-band connectivity systems. Safety and Security Technologies The company offers safety and security technology solutions that enable 911 call routing through cellular, over the Internet using voice over Internet protocol. When someone places an emergency call using one of these technologies, its software, which is utilized by certain telecommunication carriers, can identify the call as an emergency call, accesses the user’s location information from the wireless network and route the call to the assigned public safety jurisdiction. The company intends to invest in and upgrade its 911 capabilities. It offers its existing customer base NG911 systems, including 911 text messaging services, advanced data, real-time photos, and other types of information sharing over Internet protocol (IP) networks. In February 2015, the Federal Communications Commission for the Commerce Department’s FirstNet, a nationwide LTE broadband network for approximately five million first responders, which encompasses police departments, fire departments, the National Guard, and other emergency service providers using the 700MHz spectrum. the company’s FirstNet opportunities include systems integration, satellite and location infrastructure terminals, and linkage to NG911 Emergency Services IP Networks (ESInet).
