Comtech Telecommunications received a statewide contract valued up to $175.1 million to design, deploy and operate next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) services for the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The total contract value includes multiyear contract extension options. The commonwealth initially funded the contract at $137.4 million, of which Comtech expects to record $111.6 million as a booking during its second quarter of fiscal year 2021.

“We are pleased to work with Comtech to continue to evolve emergency services in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said Randy Padfield, director of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. “Our goal is to continue to provide the citizens of Pennsylvania the best possible 9-1-1 services.”

The competitively awarded contract is for implementation of Comtech’s NG 9-1-1 services that will provide citizens with advanced communications capabilities when calling for emergency services, including police, fire and emergency medical services (EMS). Through use of Comtech’s Next Generation Core Services (NGCS), Pennsylvania will be able to offer a seamless, coordinated and efficient NG 9-1-1 system to all the commonwealth’s local 9-1-1 centers.

“We are honored that Comtech has been entrusted with this important work to enable statewide access to highly reliable advanced communication systems for emergency services for the citizens of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said Comtech Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO Fred Kornberg. “With this award, we will bring our market-leading solutions and the highest performance and reliability standards to support Pennsylvanians with mission-critical emergency services.”
