TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. has been awarded a new order with a ceiling value of $60.8 million to provide Tactical SHF Satellite Terminals (TSST) to the U.S. Army. The order is initially funded at $53.1 million and will be funded up to a total of $60.8 million if the options are fully exercised. This award was made under the Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle in support of the Program Manager for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (PM WIN-T). Delivery of the terminals is expected in the second and third quarters of 2012.

 

"Today's warfighter often depends upon secure, rugged and rapidly deployable systems to achieve their missions," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "TCS is fully committed to providing the highly reliable, world-wide communications technology needed to support our troops."
