ANNAPOLIS, Md., 15 July 2010. TeleCommunication Systems Inc. (TCS) won an order to provide SATCOM Communication and Mission Analysis (SCMA) Shelters to the U.S. Army. The order is initially funded at $1.5 million and will be funded up to a total of $6.1 million if the options are fully exercised through August 2011. The 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 Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network - Tactical (PM WIN-T).
TCS delivers end-to-end managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video, and data satcom for seamless, secure connectivity between fixed sites and remote operations. Among its deployable communications solutions is the SwiftLink family.
"TCS is dedicated to providing reliable SATCOM solutions so that today's warfighter can communicate regardless of location or situation," says Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "Being able to access critical data while being remote is a necessity and TCS has a long history of successfully providing solutions and tools to the warfighters."
