Barrett Communications receives contract for east African nation

Barrett Communications has signed a contract with the National Defence Force of an east African nation. The first phase of the contract involves the supply of PRC-2090 tactical high-frequency radiocommunications systems, in Manpack configurations.

The PRC-2090 Manpacks will be used for both voice and data, via Barrett’s CLOVER modems. In country configuration, operator and maintenance training will be provided to enable the customer to be fully self-supporting.

Greg O’Neill, Barrett Communications’ managing director, said, “This is a new end user for Barrett Communications and we are pleased that many years of work in this country has resulted in this significant award.”

Barrett Communications will be exhibiting at Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) in Centurion, South Africa, during September 2016. Barrett will be showcasing its range of tactical HF and VHF radiocommunications solutions in addition to the recently announced Barrett 4050 HF software-defined radio (SDR).
