July 17, 2012  

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. has been awarded $11.3 million in additional funding to provide the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) with field support services for its communications infrastructure. The U.S. Army Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (PM WIN-T) Commercial Satellite Terminal Program (CSTP) is managing these procurements through the Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract vehicle.

As part of the TCS TotalCom portfolio, Integrated Global Support field service personnel provide technical assistance for deployed communications from core technical control facilities and data/security centers to the network edge at remote operations. The addition of these new funded positions continues TCS' support of this contract.

"The USMC needs flexible communications solutions in order to achieve their mission objectives, and the right technical support is a key element of those solutions," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions at TCS. "We are honored to provide these additional positions, covering various technical skill sets that will deliver the expertise the USMC deserves."

TCS integrated global support services harness more than 20 years of experience in serving Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) customers in and outside the continental United States, including war zones. Combining satellite, wireless and advanced network engineering services with in-theater facilities and staff, TCS ILS cost-effectively supplements the military's complex support requirements in the installation and maintenance of communications networks around the globe.
