Comtech Systems has been a leading supplier of communications systems to the global Defense and Security sector for over thirty years. As the market leaders in troposcatter technology, Comtech has continuously innovated its core product offering, resulting in a number of achievements, including:

  • The first 50Mbps digital troposcatter terminals
  • The complete modernization of the US Military AN/TRC-170 troposcatter systems
  • The development of portable angle diversity antenna systems for modern troposcatter communications, providing quad diversity performance with a single antenna

Comtech troposcatter has become an increasingly valuable element of the communications toolkit for both the US and foreign militaries, providing a low OPEX, high data rate alternative for over the horizon communication that fills the gap between satellite communications and line of site microwave. In addition to troposcatter systems, Comtech also provides customized communications solutions for defense and security customers using a variety of technologies, including Satellite communications, microwave, and HF/VHF/UHF, to name a few.
