The COMTECH Comet

The COMTECH Comet

The Comtech COMET (Compact Over-The-Horizon Manpack Expeditionary Terminal) is the world’s most tactical troposcatter system. With an operational configuration weighing only 50 lbs, this full-featured system can be airline checked, automobile transported, carried into the field, and can be set up by one person in as little as 15 minutes.

Not only is it the smallest and lightest troposcatter system available, COMET provides almost entirely undetectable BLOS voice/data communications where traditional/trusted SATCOM is unavailable. The COMET provides low latency, line of sight (LOS), obstructed line of sight (OLOS), and over the horizon (OTH) communications capability up to 70kM, in a low-profile package that operates with a 1m antenna, reduced RF signature (10W or less), and minimal prime power (<120W).

At the heart of the Comtech COMET™ is the CS67PLUS troposcatter radio, which can operate in single-stream from 946 kbps to 105 Mbps or dual-stream from 1.9 Mbps to 210 Mbps (actual throughput is based on terrain). Additionally, Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) can optimize average throughput over time.

The Comtech COMET™ can easily be linked with other Comtech tactical, mobile, and fixed terminals to provide the ideal Beyond Line-of-Sight troposcatter system for tactical Military, Disaster Recovery, and Emergency Restoral Communications anywhere in the world. Each system consists of the CS67PLUS radio as well as 10-watt SSPAs, LNAs, and diplexers all mounted to the 1m antenna.

Comtech Systems troposcatter has become increasingly valuable for both the US and foreign militaries, providing a low OPEX, high data rate alternative for over the horizon communication that fills the gap between satellite communications and line of sight microwave. Comtech also provides customized communications solutions for defense and security customers using a variety of technologies, including Satellite communications, microwave, and HF/VHF/UHF.
