A subsidiary of Melville-based Comtech Telecommunications Corp. has received a $35.4-million design and supply contract for a telecommunications system for a North African government, the parent company has announced.
Comtech Systems of Orlando, Fla., is a subcontractor in the project. A news release did not specify the prime contractor or the government.
Comtech Systems supplies "over-the-horizon microwave, line-of-sight microwave and satellite" transmission systems, the company said.
"We have worked with this end customer for many years now and believe that this contract award is a significant validation of our expertise in designing and delivering mission-critical communication systems," Fred Kornberg, president and chief executive of the parent company, said in the release.
