Comtech Telecommunications Corp says that its subsidiary Comtech Xicom Technology Inc of Santa Clara, CA, USA - a part of Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment that makes tube-based and solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) for military and commercial satellite communication (SATCOM) uplink applications - has received an $11.8m follow-on production order for solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) to be used in an airborne in-flight connectivity application.

"These [gallium nitride-based] products will enable high-speed satellite connectivity for airlines based in the Americas, Europe, and Asia," says Comtech Telecommunications Corp's president & CEO Dr Stanton Sloane. "Comtech continues to increase its presence in this market and we look forward to a long period of growth as we transition to higher-volume production to meet the worldwide demand for continuous connectivity."
