TeleCommunication Systems has obtained approval from the U.S. Army’s spectrum management office for its tactical transportable equipment, which intends to connect joint users to global communication networks.
TCS adds the Tactical Transportable Tropo system to its JF-12-certified Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-secure Internet Protocol Router Access Point 1.2- and 2.0-meter Very Small Aperture Terminal systems, the company said Tuesday.
Michael Bristol, TCS president of government solutions, said the 3T system’s JF-12 certification aims to help secure and deploy access to global frequencies for the military.
The company integrated its SNAP VSAT system into Comtech Systems’ Modular Transportable Troposcatter System terminal to develop the 3T system.
SNAP 1.2 and SNAP 2.0 VSAT terminals can upgrade to X-, Ku- or Ka-band to support operations in the field by fusing with the TCS Impact baseband solutions, TCS says.
