TeleCommunication Systems Receives $7.3 Million Funded Order from U.S. Army for SNAP Deployable Satellite Systems Equipment and Support

 

July 25, 2012

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. has received a $7.3 million funded order for equipment, field services support and maintenance of Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point (SNAP) Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite systems. The U.S. Army Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network - Tactical (PM WIN-T) Commercial Satellite Terminal Program is funding this procurement through the Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract vehicle.

"The U.S. armed forces benefit greatly from secure, easy-to-deploy and reliable satellite communications systems," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "TCS' SNAP VSAT satellite systems equipment gives our fighting forces the communications advantages they demand."

The TCS SNAP VSAT systems provide multimedia communications capabilities which convey encrypted voice, video and data. TCS SNAP products are highly transportable and ruggedized, and 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 in the SNAP product line result in communication solutions tailored to the end-user's specific needs.
