Counternarcotics program adopts Barrett radios

A contract to supply radio equipment to a US-funded program in Central Asia has been awarded to Barrett Communications.

The Counter Narcotics Global Threats program will receive a range of PRC-2090 HF manpacks and vehicle stations with tracking software. The HF systems will provide critical communications and tracking capabilities to forces, which will assist in securing their border and controlling illicit narcotics trafficking.

The rapidly changing operational environment of the client required a HF system that adapted quickly to mission requirements. The Barrett PRC-2090 is designed to be smoothly and easily interchangeable between vehicle and manpack configurations. This is achieved by the transceiver being cassette-loaded into the vehicle docking station for mobile use and returned to a manpack configuration for on-foot patrol.

“We are committed to providing products and solutions suited to our customer’s needs. Intuitive ease of use is paramount in operations such as these,” said Andrew Burt, Barrett Communications CEO.
