Comtech Telecommunications’ Safety and Security Technologies (SST) group received a multi-year statewide contract valued at $35.8 million to design, deploy and operate next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) services for the state of Arizona.

Total contract value includes a multi-year contract extension option. Excluding such option, the contract is valued at $23.5 million. The contract awarded to Comtech includes implementing Comtech’s NG 9-1-1 solutions to provide citizens with advanced communication capabilities when calling for emergency services, including police, fire and emergency medical services.

Through use of Comtech’s Next Generation Core Services (NGCS), the state of Arizona will be able to offer a seamless, coordinated and efficient NG 9-1-1 system to all the state’s local 9-1-1 centers. The award also includes an option for Arizona to purchase Comtech’s Solacom call-handling solutions for public-safety answering points (PSAPs) and includes Comtech’s new CyberSecurity software training program that will be available for employees on a statewide basis.

“Comtech has a strong presence in Arizona, having recently expanded operations in Chandler, because of Arizona’s support and focus on business,” said Comtech CEO and Chairman Fred Kornberg. “We are honored that Comtech has now been entrusted with this important work to enable statewide access to highly reliable advanced communication systems for emergency services for the citizens of Arizona and are delighted that we will also be able to offer our new CyberSecurity software training solutions to help prevent and reduce cyber-attacks on this mission critical system. We have a long history of being a partner with the state of Arizona and are delighted that we have been selected to deliver our market-leading solutions and the highest performance and reliability standards to support mission-critical emergency services.”
