Guardia Civil unit to use Motorola Solutions' covert radios

A special forces unit of Spain’s national Guardia Civil law enforcement agency is deploying covert P25 radio devices supplied by Motorola Solutions.

The contract includes several hundred APX encrypted handheld and mobile devices as well as portable repeaters.

The units will be covered by Motorola Solutions’ ‘Service From The Start’, which includes priority support and fast turnaround times for repairs.

“Secure communications is a core component of the unit’s operations,” said Guardia Civil in a statement.

“Moving from our previous communications solution, we searched for a solution that was discreet enough for covert operations, but powerful enough for long-ranged direct mode communications, and Motorola Solutions had the exact fit for us — not to mention the maximum level of encryption and top-grade ruggedness of military standards.”

“We are extremely proud to partner with one of Spain’s best law enforcement units,” said Sergio Redomero-Gonzalez, Spain and Portugal Sales Manager, Motorola Solutions.

“The solution chosen by the special unit will allow them to communicate efficiently and discreetly in their complex operations.”
