Airbus, Teracom develop Danish public safety comms

A modern communications system for public safety in Denmark will be established following an agreement between Airbus and Teracom A/S.

The secure communications solution will be provided for the police and other blue-light organisations.

Both companies aim to modernise the Danish secure radio network SINE (SIkkerhedsNettet). In order to provide a next-generation communication platform for public safety in Denmark, Airbus complements its competencies of mission-critical communication solutions with Teracom’s own secure communication infrastructure and service capabilities.

The current SINE system has been in use for a number of years and is therefore facing a necessary technological modernisation to continue serving first responders into the future.

The need for integrated and secure use of mobile broadband services will be an essential element to improve the daily communications and efforts by the Danish public safety organisations.

Airbus and Teracom will jointly propose a next-generation communication solution for the police in Denmark and the Faroe Islands. The new digital system will also serve as a unified communication platform enabling efficient exchange of information between mission-critical user organisations in Denmark.

Unlike the current SINE technology, which offers secure voice and short-message services, the future network from Airbus and Teracom will enable first responders to access mobile broadband services, ie, real-time data, images and video with a high level of security. The new hybrid solution will combine a modern dedicated TETRA network and the use of existing commercial mobile networks for a future emergency communication solution, and follows the path already taken by some other European countries such as Belgium and Finland.
