TeleCommunication Systems (News - Alert), Inc., a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, has announced to incorporate the Hughes HX VSAT system in its TCS HX Enabled Secure Satellite Network.
Sold by both TCS and Hughes, the network service will provide international satellite coverage for government and military customers and will enhance TCS's C4ISR prominence in secure communications solutions.
Officials said that the network service will also provide transmission security with higher data rates and greater flexibility and bandwidth efficiency than anything currently on the market.
The TCS HX Enabled Secure Satellite Network will support voice, data, and video communications.
"We are pleased to work with TCS on the TCS HX Enabled Secure Satellite Network," said Rick Lober, vice president and general manager of the Defense and Intelligence Systems Division, in a release.
Ideal implementations for the Network include Command and Control operations and Intelligence/Surveillance/Reconnaissance transport, as well as to provide Morale, Welfare, and Recreation capabilities for warfighters deployed in combat and peacekeeping missions.
"This arrangement is 'win-win-win,'" said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "Hughes (News - Alert) wins by gaining the ability to take advantage of expanded coverage into Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America; TCS wins by now having the ability to offer our customers better bandwidth efficiencies and TRANSEC capabilities; and our current and potential customers win by having access to more throughput on less capacity, which will translate into significant savings for them."
