August 15, 2018-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL)
announced today that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, its
Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of
Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment, received a delivery order in
support of a recently awarded contract to provide long-term support for
the Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Interface Processor
(ATIP) production terminals in support of the Space and Naval Warfare
Systems Command (SPAWAR). This latest delivery order against the
10-year, $19.1 million follow-on IDIQ contract is for $2.8 million, and
has an initial funding level of $1.6 million.

ATIP is a Layer-2 Ethernet bridging device installed on ship, shore and
submarine platforms in the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT). The ATIP
program provides significant improvements to the Advanced Extremely High

Terminal Direct (TD) mode that will enable the full capabilities of our
previous Adaptive Coding development effort," commented Fred Kornberg,
President, and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications
Corp. "The ATIP TD mode will allow the Navy to operate at very low Code
Rates to maintain communication links in impaired environments."
