TeleCommunication Systems (TCS) announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued TCS eight patents since May. These patents describe innovations in public safety, mobile location, messaging and secure communications and further strengthen these areas of TCS' intellectual property.
TCS developed methods in use to deliver wireless and VoIP E9-1-1 calls to the nearest public-safety answering point (PSAP) and is developing the way in which a native short message service (SMS) message, with location, would be delivered to the local PSAP. The following three new U.S public-safety patents build on TCS's expertise in E9-1-1 solutions:
• "Extended Efficient Usage of Emergency Service Keys”
• "Emergency 9-1-1 Data Messaging"

The following are messaging patents:

• "System and Method for Re-Directing Requests from Browsers for Communications Over Non-IP Based Networks"
The following patent allows for discreet and highly secure communications:
