Monday, April 29, 2019 | Comments

Comtech Telecommunications acquired the state and local government next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) business from General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) and immediately hired about 60 GDIT employees. Comtech also announced that during its third quarter of fiscal 2019, it was awarded a five-year contract valued at more than $100 million to develop, implement and operate a Comtech NG 9-1-1 system for a Northeastern state.

The contract award, acquisition and hiring of new employees are expected to strengthen Comtech’s position in the growing NG 9-1-1 solutions market. Under the five-year contract award, which begins Aug. 4, Comtech will develop, implement and operate a secure, IP-based NG 9-1-1 system for the state that permits emergency service requests from its existing public networks through new and emerging modes of communications and devices. Comtech will perform similar services from April 29 through Aug. 3, 2019.

Comtech will provide financial and other information concerning this contract award and the NG 9-1-1 acquisition during its regularly scheduled conference call to review the results of its fiscal quarter ending April 30.
