The USMC exercised a contract with TeleCommunications Systems to buy their Wireless Point-to-Point Link (WPPL) system to support deployed forces. The initial contract is worth about $3 M, but the company hopes to grow this through options to a total of $70 M by 2011. The WPPL System provides network and communication wireless capability to support maintenance and logistic activities. It is able to use line-of-sight and non line-of-sight capabilities to do this.
