New Project of TS2 Satellite Technologies for the US Army in Afghanistan

WARSAW, September 17 /PRNewswire/ -- TS2 Satellite Technologies (http://www.ts2.pl) has completed the tender documentation for JCC-I/A and a satellite network project for the Marines bases in Afghanistan. The government contract concerns establishing and maintaining full communications in new locations for all soldiers stationed there during next two years. The USA is going to transfer 4.5 thousand Marines from Iraq to Afghanistan as early as at the beginning of 2009.

"We were among the first telecommunications operators in the VSAT satellite technology in the territory of Iraq and Afghanistan (http://www.ts2.pl/en/Internet-in-Iraq-and-Afghanistan) and as such we have enjoyed a successful cooperation with the US Army for several years now. The Afghan project could be another big government order in the company's history" - says Marcin FrAckiewicz, CEO of the TS2 Satellite Technologies. "Our military network in Iraq has already over 10 thousand regular users for everyday broadband connections" - adds FrAckiewicz.

TS2 specializes in providing global satellite communication services in areas with poor telecommunications infrastructure. Its basic transmission medium is a two-way transfer of data, which provides not only the Internet access and data transfer but also secure and global voice communications.

TS2 communication among the bases is possible thanks to the simultaneous lease of bands on the Intelsat 10-02, Intelsat 901 and ArabSat Badr-4 satellites (http://www.ts2.pl/en/iDirect-service-over-Intelsat-10-02) whose coverage enables configuration of connections between any place in Europe, Middle East and Southwest Asia. TS2 additionally equips its customers with Thuraya (http://www.ts2.pl/en/Thuraya) and Iridium (http://www.ts2.pl/en/Iridium) satellite telephones, which are often the only means of communication in remote locations.

TS2 provides telecommunication services for the United States Marine Corps as well as for the Iraq police training institutions in the following locations: West Ramadi, Warrar, Tal-Aswad, Saqlawiyah / Saqlawiah, Rutbah, Rumanah, Ramadi District HQ, Qatanna, Mulaab, Kubaisa, Khaladiah, Karmah, Jazeera, Hit, Haqlaniyah, Hamdiyah, Habbaniyah, Forsan, Ferris, East Ramadi, Barwannah, Anah, Ameriayah and Al Qaim.

The provider of the new network for the Marines is to be selected by the end of 2008 within the applicable procedures of JCC-I/A (the Joint Contracting Command-Iraq/Afghanistan).

TS2 Satellite Technologies and Polish branch TS2 Technologie Satelitarne (http://www.ts2.pl/pl/) specialize in providing global satellite access services. The most significant clients of TS2 include: the United States Marine Corps (USMC), the United States Army Corps of Engineers and Australian Defense Forces (ADF).

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
