TeleCommunication Systems Receives $25 M to Deliver Deployed Communications Systems Support for USMC

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today announced that it has been awarded $25 million in incremental funding to provide the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) with field support services for its communications infrastructure. The U.S. Army Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (PM WIN-T) Commercial Satellite Terminal Program (CSTP) is managing these procurements through the Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract vehicle.

As part of the TCS TotalCom™ portfolio, Integrated Global Support field service personnel provide technical assistance for deployed communications from core technical control facilities and data/security centers to the network edge at remote operations. This funding continues the work that TCS is already performing under this contract.

"The USMC must have not only the infrastructure capable of providing a significantly higher service experience to all levels of users, but also the people able to maximize and secure the infrastructure while allowing them flexibility to react to constantly changing mission requirements," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions at TCS. "This incremental funding shows that the quality and level of support we have been supplying the USMC is meeting their needs."
