Barrett awarded US-funded contract for project in Egypt

Australia’s Barrett Communications has delivered HF and VHF radiocommunications equipment into Egypt as part of a United States-funded program.

The project is split over multiple phases and will include equipment for ground, mobile and airborne applications. In the first phase of the program, Barrett is providing the Barrett PRC-2080+ VHF equipment in the 5 W handheld and PRC-2082+ 50 W vehicle systems.

The Barrett PRC-2090 is also being supplied as part of the mid- to long-range communications with the PRC-2091 mobile station and PRC-2092 base station systems.

“Our HF and VHF systems are already used in this country and this contract will further enhance the existing systems they are using,” said Barrett Communications CEO Andrew Burt.
