Telecom Lead America: TeleCommunication Systems has
received additional funding of $7.7 million, which will be used to provide
field support services to U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) for its communications
These field services will be managed by the U.S. Army
Project Manager for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (PM WIN-T)
Commercial Satellite Terminal Program (CSTP).
The PM WIN-T is managing these procurements through the
Army’s $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract vehicle.
Michael Bristol, senior vice president and GM of
government solutions at TCS said that the USMC required adaptable and flexible
communications solutions, and the additional TCS resources provided will enable
the USMC to enhance that adaptability.
The company is providing technical assistance to the USMC
with its Integrated Global Support (IGS) field service personnel.
The IGS is a part of TCS TotalCom portfolio, and it
provides technical assistance for communications from core technical control
facilities and data/security centers to the network edge at remote operations.
Additionally, IGS provides Integrated Logistics Support,
Product Lifecycle Management, TotalCom field support and training for a broad
range of government customers.
The company claims that its TotalCom offers deployable,
highly secure communication solutions and complete end-to-end managed
services that ensure mission continuity,
The company also said that the mission continuity can
also be achieved through its TotalCom, as it leverages converged (IP-based)
voice, video and data solutions.
The government organizations often require converged
(IP-based) voice, video and data solutions for seamless and secure connectivity
between fixed sites and remote operations.
TeleCommunication Systems enhances NAVBuilder development
Last month, TeleCommunication Systems announced new
enhancements to its NAVBuilder Software Development Kit (SDK).
The company said that mobile application developers
can now use new NAVBuilder Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to develop
location-based services (LBS) applications for mobile devices across U.S.
carriers and platforms.
