Business Description

Industry: Communication Equipment » Communication Equipment
Compare:PTFRY, QCOM, CSCO, ERIC, NOK » details
Traded in other countries:CC6.Germany
Comtech Telecommunications Corporation was founded in 1967 and incorporated under the laws of Delaware. The Company designs, develops, produces and markets innovative products, systems and services for advanced communications solutions. The Company conducts its business through three complementary operating segments: telecommunications transmission, RF microwave amplifiers and mobile data communications. The Company sells its products to a diverse customer base in the global commercial and government communications markets. The Company's telecommunications transmission segment provides sophisticated equipment and systems that are used to enhance satellite transmission efficiency and that enable wireless communications in environments where terrestrial communications are unavailable, inefficient or too expensive. The Company's telecommunications transmission segment also operates its high-volume technology manufacturing center that can be utilized, in part, by its RF microwave amplifiers and mobile data communications segments and, to a much lesser extent, by third-party commercial customers who outsource a portion of their manufacturing to it. Accordingly, its telecommunications transmission segment's operating results are impacted positively or negatively by the level of utilization of its high-volume manufacturing center. The Company's RF microwave amplifiers segment designs, manufactures, and markets traveling wave tube amplifiers and solid-state amplifiers, including high-power, broadband RF microwave amplifier products. The Company's mobile data communications segment provides customers with integrated solutions, including mobile satellite transceivers and satellite network support, to enable global satellite-based communications when mobile, real-time, secure transmission is required for applications including logistics, support and battlefield command and control. The Company's mobile data communications segment also designs, develops and manufactures microsatellites and related components.
