TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today announced that it has been awarded a new order with a ceiling value of $9.1 million to provide SATCOM equipment, systems engineering support, installation, training and maintenance to the U.S. Army. The order is initially funded at $2.1 million and will be funded up to a total of $9.1 million if the options are fully exercised through August 2011. This 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). Under the WWSS procurement vehicle, customers may place orders through August 2011 for delivery up to a year thereafter.
"TCS is uniquely positioned to support warfighters with the systems they need in the field as well as with the hands-on support required to train users and maintain these systems," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "Our global presence -- in-theatre with the troops in many cases -- gives us a rare insight into the requirements and future trends of the warfighter, which is invaluable to innovating agilely for our customers."
