Troposcatter provides a high data-rate, low latency, over-the-horizon communication link at ranges far beyond what is achievable with line-of-site communications, without the need to rely upon satellites or intermediate relays. With Comtech troposcatter modems used in over 90% of the modern troposcatter systems deployed worldwide, Comtech is the undisputed leader in advanced troposcatter technology. Over 40 years of continuous troposcatter research and development (more than any other company in the world) have made Comtech responsible for a number of industry “firsts:”

  • The first 22 Mbps troposcatter terminal
  • The first Troposcatter specific Forward Error Correction [FEC]
  • Automatic Power Control and Code Rate to maximize performance and reduce interference
  • The first operational troposcatter link on an offshore floating platform
  • Rapidly deployable troposcatter systems that can be deployed in under one hour
