Item 1.01               Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 29, 2012, Comtech Telecommunications Corp.’s subsidiary, Comtech Mobile Datacom Corporation (“Mobile Datacom”), entered into a three-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (“IDIQ”) contract with the U.S. Army for its Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (also known as the Blue Force Tracking (“BFT-1”) program for a not-to-exceed value of $80.7 million.

Under the IDIQ contract, Mobile Datacom will provide engineering services, program management and satellite network operations on a cost-plus-fixed-fee basis, and hardware, including options for mobile satellite transceivers, on a firm-fixed-price basis to the U.S. Army. In addition, the U.S. Army has agreed to license Comtech’s intellectual property (“IP”).

The contract’s base performance period begins April 1, 2012 and ends March 31, 2013 and provides for two twelve-month option periods exercisable by the U.S. Army. The contract is “undefinitized,” as defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulations (“FAR”), since the contract value is subject to finalization and downward negotiation, except for a fixed annual IP license fee. The payment of annual IP license fees beyond the base year is contingent upon the U.S. Army’s exercise of the optional performance periods.

A copy of the press release announcing the contract is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
