Motorola to supply digital comms for the German Army

Motorola Solutions has been selected by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (Bundesamt für Ausrüstung, Informationstechnik und Nutzung der Bundeswehr, BAAINBw) to be the main contractor to design and build a deployable, digital communications network for the German Armed Forces.

The project includes the delivery of up to 120 radio systems, which will come in two versions. The first version (40 systems) will be designed for a large number of users and a wider reach integrated in 20-foot ISO containers, while the second version will be installed in operating, transport and storage containers providing greater flexibility, operational readiness and higher mobility.

The deployable mission-critical networks will combine a TETRA solution with an LTE solution for the transmission of data. The contract includes the delivery of 12,500 handheld and 4000 mobile and fixed radios.

The relocatable network solutions will be interoperable with the communication networks of the German Public Safety Organizations (BOS), NATO and the EU, and will be supplied within the next four years.
