Comtech scores with Army satellite work

The order came under the Germantown, Md., company's Movement Tracking System contract, company officials said. To date, Comtech has received $303.9 million in orders under the contract.

The Movement Tracking System uses mobile satellite transceivers that feature embedded radio frequency identification and secure Global Positioning System capabilities.

The equipment will be installed in Army National Guard vehicles and will help the Guard with disaster and recovery operations, Comtech officials said.

Comtech Mobile Datacom is a subsidiary of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. of Melville, N.Y. The company is No. 68 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest government contractors.
