Comtech secures US Army contract modification

Comtech Telecommunications’ Command & Control Technologies group has been awarded contract modifications worth around $4.2 million to continue support for the US Army’s Blue Force Tracking (BFT-1) programme.

This additional funding applies to the original award in April 2017, which totals $7.7 million of the total potential value of the base year. The modifications fulfil the Government’s obligation to fund the Firm Fixed Price (FFP) portion of the contract and are part of the five-year BFT-1 sustainment support contract for the U.S. Army’s Project Manager Mission Command (PM MC) Blue Force Tracking (“BFT-1”) programme.

BFT-1 is a battle command, real-time situational awareness and control system. Under the five-year BFT-1 sustainment contract, Comtech performs engineering services, satellite network operations and programme management.

Comtech will provide engineering services, satellite network operations and programme management for BFT-1 battle command, real-time situational awareness and control system.

Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications, said: “We are pleased that our Army customer recognises the value of Comtech’s services.

“Comtech is committed to providing the Army and its soldiers with the highest level of support to enable them to complete their missions.”
