TeleCommunication Systems... WWSS Work Until 2014 (SATCOM)

[SatNews] TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) has agreed to a third period of performance completion date extension...

...to its U.S. Army World-Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. Initially issued as a five-year, $5 billion multiple awards contract in 2006, the period of performance completion date was last extended through July 27, 2013 and is now extended to March 31, 2014.

The WWSS program is managed by the Project Manager Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (PM WIN-T) Program Management Office. TCS will continue to offer and deliver turn-key, single-source, quick-reaction solutions for emerging communications requirements worldwide in support of all federal missions.

Since 2006, TCS has received WWSS funded orders totaling about $560 million and currently has more than $750 million of not-yet-funded open orders. TCS has won over 70 percent of the awarded tasks upon which the company has bid and has fielded an installed base of more than 1,200 systems. The Company leads a team of specialized satellite communications and logistics companies that provide a full range of operations, management and logistics products and services for the WWSS program.

Over the past six years, the TCS WWSS team has demonstrated its proven ability to support today's warfighter. TCS' TotalCom™ solutions sourced through this vehicle include the Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point (SNAP) Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Satellite Systems, the Tactical Transportable TROPO (3T) System, the Wireless Point-to-Point Link (WPPL) Beyond Line of Sight system and Global Field Support Representatives.
