Note: Comtech Acquired TCS on 2/23/2016

ANNAPOLIS, MD, Jan 19, 2012 --TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today announced that the company will exhibit at AFCEA West 2012, which will be held January 24-26, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.

TCS invites attendees to stop by Booth 803 to learn about its communications solutions designed to ensure mission continuity. These include:

  • TCS Impact Tactical IP Terminal
    Impact Tactical is the smallest ruggedized communications kit to date in the TCS family of products. It is a modularly designed IP router system whose plug-and-play design and tool-free installation enable efficient adaptation as user requirements change for vehicles, rack-mounts, tents, etc. Impact Tactical's classification-agnostic approach allows physical separation between systems.
  • SwiftCell Lite Tactical Cellular System
    SwiftCell Lite is a completely self-contained cellular network housed in a small, discrete and ruggedized case. In a matter of minutes after powering up SwiftCell Lite, users can communicate and share information privately via calls or SMS text messages, utilizing commercially available phones on their own secure cellular network.

  • Wireless Point-to-Point Links
    The Wireless Point-to-Point Link (WPPL-D) provides secure line-of-sight/non-line-of-sight RF communications over terrestrial microwave radio links at distances extending up to 35 miles. A cost-effective addition to a traditional VSAT solution, the WPPL-D allows for NIPR, SIPR, VoIP, video and DSN transmission of vital information in a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configuration.
  • Galatea™Ultra-Rugged Solid-State Drive
    Galatea can operate in the harshest operating environments and is designed for a wide range of applications, including air, sea and land vehicles, notebook computers and unmanned vehicles. It features built-in power backup, which prevents data loss during unexpected power failures, and fits up to 200GB of user data into a standard, 9.5mm, 2.5-inch case. Galatea provides high-performance read/write rates for the most demanding applications and takes data security to new levels by combining 128-bit AES encryption with high-speed, full-drive erasure.
    This is the world's first commercial managed satellite service offer using a Cisco-enabled Internet Routing In Space (IRIS). It allows organizations to reach four continents in a single satellite hop from a single connection to TCS' infrastructure. The converged Cisco IRIS solution delivers optimized voice, data and video traffic over a single IP network for increased efficiency and flexibility compared to traditional satellite communication networks. Customers benefit from increased bandwidth optimization and application flexibility delivered by TCS through an end-to-end Cisco IP network.
