MELVILLE, N.Y. Comtech EF Data Corp. - a business unit under Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment - received a contract modification to support additional capabilities to the Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Interface Processor (ATIP) production terminals in support of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). The modification will add an $1.9 million under an Engineering Support Services Contract Line Item (CLIN).

The authorized funding was part of the Engineering Support Services option under the existing ATIP contract to support Program Planned Improvements (P3I) in support of the U.S. Navy's Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) Protected Military SATCOM System.

ATIP is a Layer-2 Ethernet bridging device installed on ship, shore, and submarine platforms in the Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT). The ATIP program provides significant improvements to the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) system's performance through dynamic bandwidth management, support for higher XDR data rates, and increased throughput.

"This newly authorized funding will be applied to incorporating modifications to the ATIP System to take full advantage of the recently completed ATIP Adaptive Coding capability," comments Fred Kornberg, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
