Army with 50W Ka Band Upgrade Kits for Secret Internet Protocol Router and
Non-Secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point (SNAP) Very Small Aperture

The order is initially funded at $2.1 million and will be

The U.S. Army Project Manager for the Warfighter

“This procurement affirms our ongoing ability to
support the military’s need for highly reliable, deployable satellite
communications systems,” said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and
general manager of government solutions for TCS.


“When it comes to carrying out their missions, the
U.S. armed forces need field-proven systems and support they can trust. The
fact that the military turned to us to upgrade this deployable satellite
communications equipment demonstrates the strength and reliability of our systems,”
Bristol added.


The TCS SNAP VSAT systems used to fulfill SNAP program
requirements provide multimedia communications capabilities which convey
encrypted voice, video and data.
