US Army orders SNAP deployable satellite system

2nd August 2012 - 08:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


TeleCommunication Systems has announced that it has received a new order from the US Army for equipment, field services support and maintenance of Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point (SNAP) Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite systems.

The company announced the order, worth $19 million if all options are exercised, on 1 August 2012. The TCS SNAP VSAT systems provide multimedia communications capabilities which convey encrypted voice, video and data.

TCS SNAP products are highly transportable and ruggedized, and have a graphical user interface that facilitates easy set-up and operation. The modularity and plug-and-play interfaces between all radio frequency (RF) and baseband configurations inherent in the SNAP product line result in communication solutions tailored to the end-user's specific needs.

The contract was placed under the US Army's $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract vehicle.
