Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) said its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., received an order from an existing customer valued at USD5.3m for state-of-the-art 500W Ka-band high-power amplifiers to be used in the high throughput satellite market.
These 500W amplifiers will be located at multiple gateways to enable high-capacity consumer broadband applications. HTS satellites provide significantly more total throughput compared to a classical spacecraft, thus significantly reducing cost-per-bit. This is accomplished by re-using spectrum across geographical areas with spot beams and operating at Ka-band where greater amounts of spectrum are available.
Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc. manufactures a wide variety of tube-based and solid-state power amplifiers for military and commercial satellite uplink applications. Visit www.xicomtech.com for more information.
