RDG2 Technologies, the Barrett Communications distributor and system integrator in Canada, supported DND during the intensive two year field test and validation to successfully qualify both the Barrett 2090 HF manpack and the Barrett 2050 HF transceiver in northern Canada.

“Our business process is not limited to selecting and offering robust and reliable products to integrate into a proposed system, but is also strongly oriented towards the customer's long term support. This contract will strengthen Barrett's position within the Canadian market and will certainly lead to other opportunities,” said Denis Roy, president of RDG2 Technologies.

As part of the two year field test, the Barrett HF range was assessed to ensure suitability in the extreme climate conditions experienced by Canadian DND. Barrett Communications Managing Director, Greg O'Neill commented “We were confident our equipment would meet specification as it is currently being used by Defense forces around the world in -30 degree Celsius and in excess of +50 degrees Celsius, it is what our equipment is designed and built for.”

Barrett Communications designs, manufactures and markets HF and VHF radio equipment for specialised, autonomous, long distance radio communications. HF radio communications is "free to air"; having no recurring usage charges once the communications network has been installed.

HF radio networks are capable of providing voice, email, data, fax and tracking solutions for fixed base station, mobile and manpack portable applications over thousands of kilometres.
