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).
