DISA Awards Comtech a $14.5 Million Contract Modification
Comtech Telecommunications announced that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, its command and control technologies group received a $14.5 million contract modification from the United States’ Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The modification will result in the exercise of the fourth-year option under an existing contract to provide Ku-band satellite bandwidth and support services for the U.S. Marine Corps‘ Tactical Satellite Communications Network.
The fourth option year covers the period from August 1, 2017, through July 31, 2018. The customer has now funded $73 million to date on this contract. Comtech is providing the Marine Corps with commercial satellite services to various terminals to extend the Marine Corps Enterprise Network for deployed users.
This order was issued under the joint DISA/U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Future Commercial Satcom Acquisition program. DISA and GSA are managing this procurement through the $2.6 billion Custom Satcom Solutions (CS2) contract vehicle, of which Comtech is one of eight prime contract awardees.
