TeleCommunication Systems Announces Availability of New Lightweight Executive Communications Rucksack Package

Provides NIPRNET and SIPRNET Services and Integrates IP Routers and Crypto Units With Support for Converged Voice, Video and Data Applications

ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwire - February 24, 2010) - TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in high availability and secure mobile communication technology, today introduced the SwiftLink(R) 2810 Executive Communications Rucksack Package. The rugged and reliable Executive Communications Rucksack Package is the latest addition to the TCS SwiftLink(R) family of baseband kits that integrate best-in-class IP routers and crypto units with EoIP (Everything-Over-IP) support for converged voice, video and data applications. Importantly, this new SwiftLink incorporates a "Black" router and a "Red" router that provides users access to NIPRNET and SIPRNET services.

The Executive Communications Rucksack Package is the smallest, lightest (approximately 6.5 pounds) SwiftLink that TCS now offers and is capable of communication across WAN/LAN, wireless, ISDN, ISDN 64 BGAN and government-managed secure networks. The SwiftLink 2810 can be powered by a conventional AC power source or multiple means of DC input power to include an optional battery unit such as two BA-5590's for over 10 hours. The package's innovative design provides for easy packing and deployment from rucksacks, and can be quickly customized to satisfy specific customer requirements.

"This package has been built to serve the needs of first-in and emergency responders, small tactical teams, as well as the remote-use requirements of US Customs and Border Patrol departments," says James Sprungle, vice president of government programs at TCS. "It is the most utilitarian device we have developed to date, and rounds out our company's industry-leading SwiftLink(R) baseband line of products and services."
