TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) has received a one-year, $1.2m contract from the Defense Information Technology Contracting Office (DITCO), to provide the US Army Central Command (CENTCOM) with space segment for its satellite operations. CENTCOM is funding the procurement through GSA’s SATCOM-II contract vehicle.
TeleCommunication Systems offers managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video and data offerings to organisations requiring secure connectivity between fixed sites and remote operations.
TCS Managed Satellite Services offerings include private, shared and outsourced network management through its global network, TCS-owned and operated satellite teleport infrastructure, SwiftLink operation centre and global field service force.
Jay Icard, vice president of TCS’ government solutions group, said: TCS is focused on providing managed bandwidth to CENTCOM in support of its military objectives. We look forward to continuing to fulfill CENTCOM’s growing managed bandwidth needs for the fourth year in a row, as well as the broader SATCOM needs of the other US military branches.
