TeleCommunication Systems Receives $11.4 M in Funding From US Army
- For SNAP Deployable Satellite Systems Field Support
This additional funding will enable TCS to provide support for its highly reliable 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, which has been extended to July 27, 2012 with all deliveries required to be completed by August 28, 2012.

"Our warfighters must have reliable, secure communications systems," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "With TCS' Army-proven, battle-ready SNAP satellite-based product lines and our dedicated, knowledgeable field service support professionals behind them, their chances of mission success are even greater."
The TCS SNAP VSAT systems used to fulfill SNAP program requirements 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.
