TeleSystems Concludes Distribution Agreement With Grove Of Canada

TeleSystems of Fairfax, Va., a Comsat Company, recently concluded an agreement with Grove Telecommunications Ltd., whereby that Canadian company will become a major distributor for TeleSystems, MCS-9000 maritime satellite communications terminal.

Grove, located in St. Johns, Newfoundland, will address the Canadian offshore oil industry as its principal market.

A.W. Perigard, president of TeleSystems, commenting on the agreement, said: "Grove is the only company operating in Canada dedicated exclusively to servicing the area of marine satellite communications, putting them in a prime position to successfully distribute the MCS-9000 in an active market. This agreement is a milestone of our long and mutually beneficial relationship." The MCS-9000, designed and manufactured by TeleSystems, is a shipboard satellite terminal designed to provide the maritime community with a full range of communications capabilities. The TeleSystems' terminal minimizes operator actions in call establishment and maximizes system availability through reduced complexity.

Featuring extremely compact below-decks equipment, advanced terminal software, and a passively stabilized antenna system, the MCS-9000 meets or exceeds all MARISAT and INMARSAT specifications.
