TeleCommunication Systems to Feature Total Parts Management and Engineering Services at the 28th National Space Symposium

ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwire - Apr 10, 2012) - TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today announced that it will be exhibiting at the 28th National Space Symposium, taking place April 16 - 19 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, CO. TCS Space & Component Technology representatives will be on hand at Booth 1709 to discuss the company's new engineering support services, including:

  • Counterfeit Parts Detection - The volume of satellite and launch vehicle counterfeit parts in the supply chain is increasing. With TCS' counterfeit parts detection procedures in place, companies can rest assured that its high-reliability parts are 100% genuine.

  • Failure Analysis - When a device destined for space fails, it must be analyzed to make sure the replacement part will not have the same problem. TCS engineers have the experience with all high-reliability EEE component types and with failure analysis methodology and techniques to answer the two key questions: What happened? And what can be done about it?

  • Prohibited Material Analysis - Space component manufacturers are moving to utilization of restriction of hazardous substances and lead-free materials. TCS conducts in-house x-ray fluorescence analysis to ensure all high-reliability space components do not contain prohibited materials which reduce device life or cause latent, intermittent or total system failures.

TCS' Space & Component Technology division serves the space community with high-reliability space components and a broad range of services essential to long-life spacecraft. TCS has performed total parts management for nearly every major space agency worldwide and has supplied components, parts and materials for more than 150 spacecraft manufactured in Europe, Asia and the Americas. TCS specializes in custom part manufacturing, as well as ultra-rugged solid-state drives for the most demanding environments, offering both customized and industry-standard configurations for military, aerospace and industrial applications.
