Barrett Communications have recently completed a contract worth $7 million for tactical VHF equipment.
The radios were delivered to an unnamed Middle Eastern military. In a statement, Barrett said that the new client has deployed the equipment as part of a planned modernisation of their existing military VHF systems.
The contract incorporated the full range of Barrett PRC-2080+ VHF systems, which are designed for multi-role tactical military applications.
The contract included the hand portable, manpack, mobile, base station and re-broadcast configuration. The Barrett PRC-2080+ system will provide secure voice and data communications over line of sight range.
Training was recently undertaken in country ready for full deployment within the coming months.
Barrett also provided the VHF communications for ten reconditioned Bushmasters supplied to the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) last year.
Barrett Communications personnel worked with Thales Australia to install the radios and integrate them with the Thales SOTAS Intercom System.
