Mobile Telesystems Begins Operations

Mobile Telesystems, a new company based in Fairfax, Va., that provides mobile satellite products, recently began operations, Kenneth A. Homon, president and chief operating officer, has announced.

The mobile business was previously part of Comsat Corporation's product group. Microelectronics Technology, Inc. is the new parent company with Comsat retaining a minority interest.

Mr. Homon said, "The establishment of the new company will allow for expansion and growth of the mobile markets previously served by Comsat and the emerging unique market segments addressed by the transportable 'earth station in a suitcase' product." The mobile business includes products used throughout the world. They are the TCS-9000 "earth station in a suitcase" and the MCS-9120 series maritime communications systems. The TCS-9000, a portable earth station, fits into two suitcases, weighs 140 pounds and can be assembled and made fully operational by one person in 15 minutes. The MSC-9102 is a rugged lightweight gyro-connected terminal used aboard vessels at sea. Both products provide voice, data, and image communications throughout the world via the International Maritime Satellite Communications System (INMARSAT).
