Radio installation in Taiwan

Friday, 25 November, 2011

Daniels Electronics has passed acceptance testing of radio systems being provided to the Taiwanese Civil Defence Command Centre (CDCC).

Combined with systems being provided to the Taiwanese National Fire Agency, this represents a total of US$2.7 million in new international business for Daniels for the supply of firmware-based digital public safety radio technology.

The orders for MT-4E P25 digital radio repeaters will be used by both agencies to expand the country’s nationwide emergency communications warning and response network.

The Taiwan Civil Defence Command Centre is responsible for using the national civil defence alerting system to warn Taiwanese citizens of national emergencies. Similarly, The National Fire Agency has responsibility for firefighting, ambulance services and emergency response during a natural disaster.

The need for a nationwide radio network to coordinate response efforts was well understood and critically important with the increasing number of severe typhoons that Taiwan has annually.

The company is providing the radios through its local system integration and engineering partner Harbinger Technology, which will oversee the system design, installation and life cycle maintenance. The entire network is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2012.

The aim of both systems is to provide siren alerting as well as encrypted digital communications for first responders on the beaches and other points at risk in the event of a natural disaster such as a typhoon, earthquake, tsunami or flood.
