TeleCommunication Systems Receives $3.4M Funding from U.S. Army
TeleCommunication Systems (NASDAQ: TSYS) today 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.
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,
