TeleCommunication Systems gets $25 million order for deployable satellite systems equipment

Dec 14, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSYS) said it has received a delivery order from the US Army for Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point 1.2M Lite Very Small Aperture Terminal satellite systems and IMPACT Tactical baseband equipment. This order has a total value of $25 million, if all options are exercised.

The majority of the equipment funded by the initial delivery order award will be delivered by the end of the first quarter of 2013. These SNAP VSAT and IMPACT Tactical systems will be fielded as a part of the Small form Factor company Command Post Terminals. The US Army Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network - Tactical (PM WIN-T) Commercial Satellite Terminal Program is funding these procurements through the Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems contract vehicle.

The TCS SNAP 1.2M Lite terminal is a pack-in-the-box VSAT solution that is field-upgradeable to Ka- or X-band, with a swap of the feed boom assembly, for rapid deployment, ease of use and suitability for harsh operating environments. Its decrease in size and weight over the existing SNAP system improves transportability and deployment flexibility for better mission dynamics. Interfaced with the Impact baseband packages, TCS SNAP 1.2M Lite enables an extension of a common operating environment throughout a global network. As part of the SNAP suite of products, these packages provide the flexibility of multiple configuration options for the end-user.

TeleCommunication Systems is a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology. TCS infrastructure forms the foundation for market leading solutions in E9-1-1, text messaging, commercial location and deployable wireless communications. The company's website is at www.telecomsys.com.
