TeleCommunication Systems Receives $19 Million Delivery Order from U.S. Army for SNAP Deployable Satellite Systems Equipment and Support

Aug. 1, 2012

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. announced that it has received a new $19 million delivery order from the U.S. Army 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 funding is the result of a successful bid on a task order for satellite communications equipment and support from the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command.

The order is initially funded at $700 thousand and will be funded up to a total of $19 million if the options are fully exercised. This new order will provide the U.S. Army with equipment and support for TCS' SNAP deployable communications products. 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.

"The U.S. armed forces need satellite communications systems that are easily deployed, secure and reliable," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "TCS' SNAP VSAT satellite systems equipment meets these criteria and can help our military succeed."
