TeleCommunication Systems Receives $2.8 Million Funded Order from U.S. Army for MICRO VSAT and Baseband Equipment

 

7 December 2012

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. has received funding of $2.8 million from the U.S. Army for X- and Ku-Band MICRO VSAT satellite communications equipment. 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.

"In order to conduct modern operations, our military needs secure and reliable satellite communications," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions at TCS. "MICRO VSAT and baseband equipment meets this need while providing warfighters with the flexibility built into the smallest, lightest man-portable SATCOM terminal available today."
