Two international contracts awarded to Barrett Communications
Barrett Communications has secured multiple new contracts for high frequency (HF) and very high frequency (VHF) communications systems to defence, peacekeeping and government customers in Chile and India. It will supply HF and VHF tactical radio communications systems in support of a multi-million-dollar contract for international peacekeeping operations.
The Chilean Navy is further expanding its existing Barrett HF high-power systems. These systems provide monitoring and supervision services protecting the vast Chilean coastline and waters. This contract comprises liquid-cooled Barrett 4075 1 kW high-power systems and Barrett 4050 HF SDR base stations, augmenting existing Barrett radio installations for the navy.
Additionally, Barrett is completing manufacture and delivery of 541 commercial HF base station systems to the Indian Government. The HF systems are an integral part in developing a resilient HF communications network, connecting government agencies across the country ensuring emergency communications infrastructure resilience.
