      [Via Satellite 10-23-2015] TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) has received $5 million in incremental funding from the U.S. Army for sustainment of the AN/TSC-198A SNAP (Secret Internet Protocol Router (SIPR) and Non-classified Internet Protocol Router (NIPR) Access Point) Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSATs). Ruggedized and designed for transport, the TCS SNAP VSATs provide secure communications for voice, video and data.

      Combined with the initial funded contract value of $18.6 million, this brings funding to date to $23.6 million. The ceiling contract value, including funded and unfunded amounts, is nearly $91 million through September 2018, if the Army exercises all options.
