The Telos® Automated Message Handling System (AMHS) is a cost-efficient Web-based solution that provides access to the full spectrum of organizational messaging systems and protocols in a single application.

Developed to work with OMS, ITS and other messaging sources, Telos AMHS greatly simplifies configuration management, system administration, and customer interface to the DoD record messaging system. The same solution also handles non-legacy messages, including SMTP email and news wire services as well as a number of agency-specific formats and protocols.

Multiple layers of security and privacy protection; accredited to meet ICD-503

Create, coordinate, and send messages — free text or using USMTF

Rapid search and retrieval of messages and attachments from a central repository including search within attachments

Retrospective search to review message traffic history related to specific past missions and projects

The Right Message, to the Right User, at the Right Time. 

Telos AMHS immediately routes incoming messages to the right desktop and creates an archive of all arriving traffic for future reference. AMHS also provides intuitive tools for searching and retrieving messages from the archive while protecting against unauthorized access. In addition, AMHS provides an easy way to create, coordinate, and release outgoing messages.

Comprehensive auditing capabilities with full audit trail

Easy-to-use profiling wizards; users can maintain their own profiles

Simple implementation, administration, and use so personnel can focus on their primary tasks

Segregation of organizations and users

AMHS routes messages by content, independently or in conjunction with the organizational recipient’s LDAP display name. This routing method ensures that users get all the messages relevant to the users’ activities, and none that aren’t. AMHS users can quickly search millions of messages in their organization’s message databases, including attachments, to support changing message requirements.

Fast failover /recovery
