MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., was recently awarded a $2.8 million order for satellite earth station equipment from a systems integrator to support a Comtech EF Data Vipersat-powered network in Latin America.

The order included the supply of CDM-570L-IP satellite modems, the CDD-564L IP demodulators, the Vipersat Management System and RF products including LPOD Block Up Converters and HPOD High-Power Amplifiers.
