TeleCommunication Systems Gets Incremental Funding from U.S. Army

Jan 16, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- TeleCommunication Systems (TCS), a company focusing on secure mobile communication technology, announced that it has received $3.4 million in incremental funding from the U.S. Army for equipment, field services support and maintenance of Secure Internet Protocol Router and Non-Secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point (SNAP) Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite systems equipment.

According to a release, the U.S. 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 (WWSS) contract vehicle.

TCS SNAP VSAT systems provide multimedia communications capabilities which convey encrypted voice, video and data.

Highly transportable and ruggedized, TCS SNAP VSAT systems also have a graphical user interface that facilitates easy set-up and operation.

The modularity and plug-and-play interfaces between all radio frequency (RF) and baseband configurations inherent to the product line result in communication solutions tailored to the end-user's specific needs.

"In addition to having easily deployable and secure satellite communications systems, our military must also have the knowledgeable support to ensure that those systems are always at peak performance levels for continuity of operations," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "With TCS' tested and proven SNAP VSAT systems, as well as our experienced and dedicated field service personnel, our fighting forces will have a powerful means to achieve mission success." For the past 25 years, TCS said it has established a track record as a trusted provider of communication technology solutions to solve the government's toughest technical challenges, under conditions that demand the highest level of reliability, availability and security. To ensure mission continuity and to meet the need for mobile wireless services, TCS TotalCom offers deployable, highly secure communication solutions and complete managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video and data solutions to organizations requiring seamless and secure connectivity between fixed sites and remote operations around the world.
