TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today announced that it has been awarded $19.2 million in incremental funding to provide the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) with Wireless Point to Point Link (WPPL) systems and depot spares equipment. 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, the TCS WPPL system provides secure point-to-point and point-to-multipoint, line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight transmission of voice, video, and data communications. WPPL enables the USMC to close the gap on the "last digital mile," pushing data services to the network edge using a low-cost alternative to more expensive beyond-line-of-sight satellite communications.
"The USMC is employing a variety of innovative communications solutions in order to achieve their goals," stated Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions at TCS. "TCS' secure, proven, and cost-effective WPPL solution helps them maintain this reputation for innovation and continue their important mission."
TCS has established a proven track record for more than two decades as a trusted provider of communication technology solutions to solve the government's toughest technical challenges, under conditions that demand the highest level of reliability, availability and security. To ensure mission continuity, TCS TotalCom offers deployable, highly secure communication solutions and complete end-to-end managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video and data solutions to organizations requiring seamless and secure connectivity between fixed sites and remote operations.
