TeleCommunication Systems... Bravo For BLOS Platform (SATCOM)

[SatNews] TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS) has announced its SwiftLink(r) Tactical Transportable Tropo (3T) Solution has received a 2010 Satellite Spotlight Product of the Year Award from TMC.

TCS teamed with Comtech Systems, the world leader in Troposcatter communications technology providing the most advanced and proven Tropo modem and radio available, to develop the solution for today's warfighters. By delivering beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) capability in a transportable, flyaway Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT), the SwiftLink 3T solution enhances communications capabilities with seamless compatibility and interoperability with legacy-fielded Troposcatter systems and other communication systems including the TCS Swiftlink family. The SwiftLink 3T solution delivers high-throughput capacity to enable mission-critical surveillance, situational awareness and real-time data to remote, infrastructure-challenged locations. The award-winning solution overcomes significant terrain challenges to allow direct transmission between sites, thereby eliminating recurring costs, complexity, and delay in satellite communications.
