Bethesda, MD, Nov. 18 2013 – Intelsat General Corp. has been awarded a subcontract from
TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable
and secure mobile communication technology, to provide managed Ku bandwidth on Intelsat
satellites, in addition to associated teleport and terrestrial services, for the U.S. Marine Corps.

The initial subcontract is for a base 12-month period starting August 1, 2013, with four, one-year
option periods. The TCS contract was issued under the joint Defense Information Systems

Intelsat General is also providing TCS with IGC Sat-View, a customized, encrypted, bandwidthmanagement-reporting
tool that enhances the ability to monitor and manage satellite circuits on
the network and includes a scheduling feature to enable a more efficient utilization of assigned
satellite bandwidth.

have developed a strong, strategic partnership that is a part of our ongoing effort to supply our
fighting forces with superior satellite communication solutions.”

“Through our partnership with TCS, we will be able to provide satellite services that are vital
communications links supporting Marine Corps operations and deployed forces overseas and in
